Astrid Heimer

Real name: 

Astrid Heimer is a ceramic artist and assistant professor at Productdesign, Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Sciences in Norway. A cross-disciplinary background in art, craft and design has given her a wide perspective on perception in aesthetic practice. She is currently a PhD candidate at the University College of South East Norway—the topic of her research being embodied knowledge in three-dimensional form theory, with both the human body and the materiality of clay being given a significant role. In turn, this reflects a comeback for formgiving as a core-knowledge within the wider field of artistic research.
