About

Heather Soicher is a ceramicist in Mill Valley, California and has a passion for nature, cooking, and gathering friends and family together.  

She grew up in Monterey to artist parents and has immersed herself in ceramics since high school.  She has a degree in Anthropology and early on was drawn to the way clay plays an elemental role in human culture - the functional and the sacred - throughout history.  The limitations and possibilities, both inherent in clay, are an important part of her work.

Heather enjoys making both functional ceramic pieces for the kitchen and table, and also more whimsical work including her “Birds of Wisdom” - a series of owls, each unique and with their own personality, that include a hidden quote inside.
