Helen is also a member of 14 THE GALLERY a small arts and crafts co-operative in the refurbished Pannier Market in Great Torrington.
Helen's work is inspired by the forms, patterns and dynamics found in the natural world, such as fern fronds, shells, the movement of water and the ever changing sky. Through the sensual handling of clay the natural process of growth, containment and disintegration are evoked. Intricate textures
created through the use of found objects.
