Heinmaa, who passed away in 2014, was active in the Estonian-
Canadian arts community for many years. Her first solo show was held at Tartu College in 1969, a popular success. Fellow artist Abel Lee wrote, “Vases, bowls, cups, and sundry pottery – all are shaped by deft fingers, endowing a unique sculptural quality and sense of fantasy to each piece.”

Heinmaa continued to explore the Japanese-inspired raku technique, prevalent in the 1970s, with its surprising formations and opalescent glazing effects.

The exhibition covers decades of Heinmaa’s creative output, and
includes curiosities such as whimsical table lamps and Estonian-themed decorative plaques.
