Flotsam & Jetsom
Helen produces finely made porcelain vessels, inspired by the ancient world. Slab built and press moulded forms are combined with coloured inlay, hand printed ceramic transfers and shellac resist; where the clays surface is washed away before firing to create translucent thin pots. Other forms have relief features – symbols pressed directly into the clay or rolled onto hand cut lino. She uses southern Ice porcelain for its bright white quality. All her work is fired to high temperatures in an electric kiln at her workshop near Ripon.
