Helen Ashton

Maker’s story

Helen loves exploring divergent forms and finishes, hand-building tactile sculptural vessels and throwing functional ware. Inspired by nature’s successive seasons, reflecting the environment texturally, by manipulating the surfaces, and visually merging blends of clay, oxides and glazes.

Method

From a background of research science Helen has a keen interest in experimentation, linking various building and alternative firing techniques. Sculptural forms, using hand-building and throwing, combined with multiple slip and glaze applications gives textural and visual diversity to her body of work. Each vessel’s character is unique in feel, impression and scale.
