Helen Perrett

Helen Perrett

Helen Perrett enjoys making works with a slightly fantastical quality. It is essentially illustrative/narrative in theme, referencing her interests in travel, language, art history, animals, gardening and reading.

"I like to draw on history, literature, mythology, children’s book illustration and the rich history of ceramics for inspiration.  I have been influenced by my love of children's book illustration and favourite artists include William Heath Robinson, Arthur Rackham, Michael Hague, Chris Riddel, Mervyn Peake, Nick Bantock, Peter Suart, Shaun Tan and Kay Neilsen... and I could go on!"

Helen Perrett works mainly with terracotta clays but then complicates life by enjoying modelling and throwing with porcelain. 

She mainly fires in an electric kiln to earthenware temperatures but enjoys forays into soda firing and raku.

Most of the sculptural works are finished with layers of coloured slips and oxide washes.
