Helen designs and builds functional tableware, forming each piece from high quality white earthenware, either hand-throwing on a potters wheel or building from slabs of clay, finished with a transparent high-gloss glaze making them practical for food or drink.
“I find it endlessly fascinating to observe the social activities surrounding eating and drinking. Our culture references; with whom we are socialising; the circumstance of the event; each influence the tableware we choose. I like to make pieces that spark a comment or conversation.”
The way an object looks and importantly how it feels to hold and use are important considerations to Helen. “The challenge is to keep within the confines of functional practicality whilst still exploring innovative shapes for design.” Inspiration comes from many places: modern architecture; the sails of a yacht; the shape and geology of the coastline. Ultimately the aim is to make tableware that you and your guests will enjoy using.
