Helen is passionate about making work which connects her and others to the topography, flora and fauna of Cornwall. Her playground has been the beaches, coast-paths and intertidal zones of the coast for decades.
She says, “there is nothing better or nicer than meandering along the paths, walking across virgin sand left by the retreating tide or exploring the rockpools; my work is about bringing the outdoors indoors.” Helen aims for individuals to connect with her work and recognise the benefits engaging in these green and blue spaces can have on their health and wellbeing.
The Bright Side has seen Helen explore and develop her Buoy vessels, building, layering and placing unused colour pallets together as she has experimented and evolved the collection. “It’s been a delight to advance my practice through looking more closely at colour. I have created new vibrant mixes and tones, which give a true zing to each of the unique vessels.”
