Luce Artist Biography

Heikki Seppä studied metalworking techniques in Helsinki and Denmark before he and his wife, Ulla, immigrated to British Columbia in 1951. The couple relocated again in 1965 to St. Louis, where the artist taught metalsmithing and design at Washington University. Seppä was noted for developing the reticulation technique, a method that dominated his work into the 1970s.
