Heida Halldorsdottir

Heida Hallsdordottir draws on ideas for her art from daily life in her native country of Iceland, as well as their belief for "in between" what you can see and what you cannot. Her small island has a rich history and tradition of storytelling, and Heida has always been fascinated with the world in between, a world where trolls, elves, fairies, and other creatures live in nature, flowers, and trees. Endless stories exist about men and women that are all light in coloring with long white hair and decorated with gold, a look that is seen in most of Heida's sculptures. In addition to the clay, she often uses welding, crocheting, knitting, weaving, copper wire, felted wool, handmade paper, fabric, and miscellaneous found objects to create her sculptures.
