Open Studio with Heather Soderberg on KBOO

Dmae dropped by the studio of Heather Soderberg in Cascade Locks, OR. Soderberg is known for her life-size sculptures. Her most well-known work is that of Sacagawea, the famed Native American heroine and guide to Lewis and Clark.

Soderberg has been creating scuptures since she was two years old when her father gave her some soft wax. She instantly sculpted impressive figures and became a child prodigy. Father and daughter often still work together on occasion. In 2009, Soderberg became the only woman to own a bronze foundry in the U.S.
