Helen Harrison - Pair of espresso cups
Height, 6.5cm dia (top) 5cm
These 'two sided' porcelain espresso cups feature a different but complementary design on either side - allowing the user to choose which style to favour.
The way an object feels to hold and use are important considerations for Helen while she is shaping a vessel on the throwing wheel, or creating a handbuilt piece of sculpture; her aim is to capture the sense of fluidity of the raw clay within the finished piece.
Helen wants to create pieces which can be used and enjoyed everyday, bringing a sense of ceremony and meditation to familiar activity, such as drinking the first cup of tea of the day.
