My favourite of her works is the polar bear with the wee rider that reminds me of a younger Ivy; I can just imagine her fantasizing about bonding with a new animal friend and the pair riding off on a wild, dreamy adventure.
A little bit of background about Helen, she is based in Auckland and has been practicing ceramics for 19 years. Helen studied remotely at Otago Polytechnic gaining a Diploma in Ceramics in 2009 and holds a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Art History and English Literature. She has won many Merit awards for her work and People’s Choice awards too; which attests to the love out there for her amazing ceramics. Helen has taught classes for 9 years, sharing her skills and passion for clay with fellow potters and those new to the craft. Helen not only makes hand-built figures and animal sculptures but also functional containers and domestic ware too; we hope to receive some of these other wonderful functional pieces in the future.
