Helen Eastham - 'Shoreline', large glass vessel
Kiln fired and hand finished glass vessel, extra large (43 cm x 37 cm x 13 cm tall)
Helen is passionate about making work which connects her and others to the topography, flora and fauna of her native 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.”
Her 'Shoreline' collection was inspired by the rock pools near Helen's home on the north Cornwall coast.
