Benjie Heu is Professor of Ceramics at Southeast Missouri State University. He has an MFA from Ohio University, Post-Bac from the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth and a BFA from the University of Montevallo.

The ceramics of Benjie Heu expresses a personal narrative with the most outlandish adventures accounted with an eye fixed on the bare essentials. Battles against time, against the obstacles that prevent the fulfillment of desire or the repossession of something cherished but lost are themes that inspire him. Revealing truth and humor in the face of horror and the seemingly absurd is his answer.
