Helen has developed her distinctive style of Nuno felting to make wool and silk Neckscapes that are lightweight and voluminous, translucent yet colourful and evocative of the light and textures of the Scottish Southern Uplands. Each Neckscape comes with a versatile magnetic Scarf Clip (also felted) in an accent colour that allows the Neckscape to be worn in many ways without causing damage to the fabric.
Helen produces unique ceramic figures, whimsical and dreamlike in their use of facial expression, body language and occasional narrative in wall sconces, candlesticks, bowls, boxes and decorative pieces.
She is inspired by Victorian Staffordshire figures, Mexican and North American folk art. All the work is handmodelled in earthenware clay with underglaze decoration and transparent matt and satin glazes and gold leaf.
