Abstract:
Heeney’s work was developed to understand and comment upon the history of the property, a former brickyard, by juxtaposing it with a contemporary view on brick as artistic medium. In the process, Heeney advanced the use of brick on both a technical and aesthetic level. She combined traditional energy efficient firing/glazing methods for bricks dating back to Medieval times, with contemporary ceramic studio methods of firing/glazing; and she developed new artistic applications of bricks and brickwork to achieve a heightened sculptural quality through light and surface reflection. The process included construction and assembly of wet clay forms; sculpted and de-constructed then fired prior to re-assembly.
