Award winning ceramic artist, Helen Perrett enjoys making works with a slightly fantastical quality. Her work is essentially illustrative and narrative in theme, referencing her interests in travel, language, art history, animals, gardening and reading.
Helen works mainly in terracotta and most of her sculptural works are finished with layers of coloured slips and oxide washes.
A love for literature, mythology, children’s book illustrations and the rich history of ceramics are a constant source of inspiration. Some of her favourite authors and artists include William Heath Robinson, Arthur Rackham, Michael Hague, Chris Riddel and Mervyn Peake, to name a few.
