Created from kiln-formed glass, Helen’s tactile glass curves are strongly influenced by place. However, rather than depicting the landscape directly her focus is always on the interpretation of found textures within the landscape in combination with a sense of the atmosphere of a place.

“I was delighted when David and Jon asked me to join their North Wales coast project. The pieces I have created for this collection developed from the initial sketches made by David and Jon on their trips to the coast in combination with observations made on my own visits.”

Each piece is initially worked flat, created by layering up glass powder, glass frit (small chunks) and sheet glass. This is then fired in the kiln before another layer can be added; most pieces in this collection have been through this process 4 or 5 times. In the final stage the piece is sandblasted to give the glass its tactile matt surface before being returned to the kiln one last time to be fired over a former, creating the final sculptural form.

Helen has been working with glass since completing her degree in Applied Arts specialising in glass in 2013 and regularly exhibits both locally and further afield. She is a co-founder of the LAKE gallery.
