The Artist

Heather Zuur

Born in 1987 in Canada I imigrated in 2009 to my parents homeland the Netherlands. After living in Amsterdam for three years I moved to Groningen to study. Now I work as a physical education teacher at a highschool in the north of the country and spend time potting on the side. I am married to a frisian man who supports my hobby with his carpentry shelf building skills and his IT website building skills.
I did a introduction pottery course in september 2014. It was something that I’d always wanted to do since I was young. My sisters did a mini potting course when I was little and I remember wishing to join them. At first I didn’t realize that it would become such an adicting hobby. I really enjoy exploring all the posibilities that are part of the pottery and ceramics world.
