NARRATIVES: a new collection of work for Ceramic Art London

In this new body of one-of-a-kind porcelain, created especially for Ceramic Art London, Helen continues to explore her unique approach to illustration and story telling. Her narratives unfold across the surfaces of wheel thrown porcelain vesselsand hand built objects: each piece depicts a scene from a wider story told in conversation with neighbouring forms.

For this collection her cast includes creatures from the zoo, wildlife from London parklands, together with the characters which have long captured her playful imagination.

Ceramic Art London continues to be the leading international ceramics fair in London, showcasing the very best ceramics from around the world.

January 2018

Happy 2018! We are welcoming in the New Year with the launch of Helen's collaboration with Jo Malone London. The London illustrated Hand Cream Trio has finally landed in the shops. It has been such an enjoyable project thanks to the lovely people at JML. The brief was to create an illustration which said London. Helen chose the morning commute across London Bridge battling the elements, umbrellas and all.
