Heather Pitts

Molded and shaped into existence, unable to replicate, a stark black and white palette with natural materials express the delicate features of Heather Pitts’ sensitive designs. Based in Nova Scotia, Pitts, a self-taught ceramicist, holds a Bachelor of Science in Human Ecology which led her to several studies on the relationships between humans and their environment (natural, social and built).


Inspired by the surrounding nature, antlers, dried botanicals, driftwood, worn out stones, rusted metals and bleached bones shape the pieces created by Pitts in her home studio. Through singularly beautiful and tangible ceramics works, she expresses a myriad of emotions about humanity and nature in each curve, pattern, and rawness of her pieces.

Pitts has exhibited extensively in North America and had her work published in the Globe and Mail (2023) and House & Home (2022). Pitt’s work can be found in many private and public collections such as the Vessel and Sticks Gallery (Toronto), Elte Handmade Gallery (Toronto), and Hugh Jones MacIntosh (Australia).
