Norma Hintze studied painting,drawing and printmaking at American University. She has a B.A. in Art History.
Later she attended summer courses at Haystack, Maine and Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina.
She attended many clay workshops taken with well known ceramic artists,which were helpful and enjoyable..

Her studio is in Potomac, Maryland. There she fires her work in a gas reduction kiln. She participates in
monthly shows at the Scope Gallery in Alexandria, Va. along with members of the Ceramic Guild and the
Kiln Club of Washington. She is a juried member of the Torpedo Factory Art Center.

Vivid layered glazes are used on her porcelain and stoneware pieces. She is inspired by the colors of nature.
The glorious variety of evening sunsets, and the ever changing colors of the ocean are reflected in her work.

Recently working with crystalline glazes has brought exciting results. Crystals formed on vases and bowls are
completely random, and like snowflakes, each piece is one of a kind.
