Natalie Heriot completed a Diploma of Ceramics at Holmesglen TAFE in Victoria. She has taught and made functional, decorative stoneware pottery in her Mornington Peninsula based home studio since then.
Each piece individually made by her hands utilising a variety of making techniques. Pieces usually starting their life on the wheel, then they are altered or decorated to create one off unique pieces.
Natalie utilises found objects for mark making; hand blending her clays and glazes. Work is then fired to 1280C in an electric kiln offset by solar power ensuring that pieces will endure the rigours of everyday use for years to come.
The coastal environment of the Peninsula a constant inspiration for her work.
