Steven Heinemann (1957, Canada) is fascinated by the 'pottery space' of his objects, by the space they contain and the containment vessel itself. Ten years ago he returned to the bowls, and at first he concentrated on its two-dimensional space: he applied decorations to the interior surface of his objects. More recently, Heinemann is drawn by the three-dimensional aspects of his work: he has started playing with the forms of the bowls themselves, even though he hasn't removed the decorations. Heinemann's objects are always simple bowl forms, monochrome except for the decoration on the inside. At the moment he often applies cracks, but occasionally he adds a figurative drawing to his objects.
