Recreation Center’s Josephine Heilpern studied printmaking at Cooper Union, and her background in two dimensions still informs each new piece of ceramic work. For Heilpern, ceramics is less about reinventing the form and more about the feats she can achieve with surface patterning and mixing materials. To date, Heilpern’s made planters, mugs, pitches, and bowls adorned with grid marks, squiggles, polka-dots, and bricks; her inspiration comes from everything from the Russian Avant-Garde to Memphis.
