Helen produces playful, resonant works using a variety of appropriate materials. Her works frequently allude to function, borrowing and abstracting meaning and significance from both domestic and ritual objects in order to create contemporary indicators, highlighting shared domestic activities, connecting past and present.

Helen uses a variety of clays and surface effects but has also sourced and used unique clay dug from the Lizard peninsula in Cornwall. Gabbroic clay was used in Cornwall from the start of the Neolithic period lasting roughly 5000 years; she has been working with Archaeologists and Anthropologists on an international interdisciplinary engagement project. www.cinba.net
