A Sculpture’s Studio:
The Heart and Home
of Heather Blume

by Sheryll Hirschberger Reichwein

Heather Blume

As a young child, Heather Blume spent the days of her Cape Cod summers drawing in the sand. By the end of every day the tide would come and wash her masterpieces away.

“My mother was the artist in the family,” says Blume. “She owned all of the artist’s tools. It never occurred to me or anyone else that I should have them too. So I drew in what I had available. The sand.”

A thirteenth generation Cape Codder, Blume spent her early years exploring the same beaches her ancestors walked centuries before. And though she’s since lived in many other places and traveled much of the world, purchasing her Harwich home and studio five years ago was truly a return to her deepest roots—both personally and artistically.

Blume explains, “There were no TVs in my Cape Cod summers. The people I knew entertained each other with stories, full of pretending and imagination .I developed a love for narrative that is so much a part of who I am today.”
