Regina Heinz

Regina Heinz is known internationally for her tactile ceramic sculptures with highly distinctive abstract designs, tessellated and integrated into softly undulating forms.

Emmanuel Cooper, a leading potter, curator and art critic, wrote: “Her pieces have a powerful sculptural quality and appear tactile and organic. The sensual curves of the forms suggest both the intimacy of the body and the flowing lines of landscape, though equally, they can be seen as purely abstract in dealing with line, volume, mass and colour”.

Water has been a recurrent motif in Regina’s work, effortlessly translated into fluid forms and abstract flowing designs. Her most recent line of architectural ceramics is a distillation of her work as an artist. The large-scale wall-pieces have the same undulating surface, the same distinctive combination of fluidity and rigour and animate each plane with rippling patterns of light and shadow.

Regina studied Fine Art and Ceramics in Vienna, Geneva and London and has worked from her ceramics studio in London since 1998. Regina received funding from the Crafts Council to set up her workshop. She is a Crafts Council Selected Member, an elected Fellow of the Craft Potters Association of Great Britain, and a member of the International Academy of Ceramics.

Her award-winning work has been exhibited at major art and ceramic fairs such as the London Art Fair and is held in public and private collections around the world including the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, England and the Museum of Contemporary Ceramics in Gifu, Japan.

Regina Heinz has lectured and taught worldwide. Her work is widely published in international magazines and books.

Portfolio includes an exclusive tile line for the American tile-retailer Ann Sacks, residential commissions in London and Saudi-Arabia and a series of sculptural wall-pieces for 2000 cabins of P&O’s cruise ship Britannia, launched in 2015.
