Heather Nameth Bren
Lauderdale, MN

Heather Nameth Bren received a Masters of Fine Arts in Ceramics from the University of Kansas in 2003. Since then, Bren has received grants through the Jerome and McKnight Foundations and has been noted as an emerging artist by Ceramics Monthly. She is a 2013 recipient of an Artist Initiative grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board to research Delft tiles. Her creative practice and ceramic exploration are diverse, including ceramic jewelry, installation, functional ware, and her most current "tile paintings." Bren’s current “tile paintings” explore the relationship of inner trauma to external environments and conditions.  In contrast, Bren’s “uncentered centering cups” encourage and affirm the user with playful imagery, cheeky quips, and glitter glaze. In addition to her studio practice, Bren has been a Professor of Art since 2007.  She is currently teaching at Bethel University in St. Paul, Minnesota.
