Porcelain mug, 9.5 cm tall

Helen studied Art and Design at Loughborough College of Art, specialising in ceramics and gaining a B.A. Honours. She then culminated her studies by attaining a place at the Royal College of Art and graduating with a Degree of Master of Arts. “I enjoy making functional tableware and find it fascinating to observe how our cultural references, with whom we are socialising and the circumstances of the event each effect the tableware choices we make. I like to make pieces that are part of this experience and may spark a comment or conversation. Inspiration for the shapes come from many places including modern Architecture, also living by the sea has given me a passion for the coastline, the elegance of sailing boats the tension of the sail as they glide through the water and the shape and geology of the coastline are all influential aspects of my vessels design. The way an object looks and feels to hold and to use are important considerations for me, when making a functional object, ultimately the aim is to make tableware that will be both enjoyable to look at and fun to use.”

We hope to contribute to the creative mix already here so that Hay gets known for its galleries as well as its bookshops. Owned and run by Guy and Ellie Perkins, Bluestone has recently moved from Devizes where it enjoyed a loyal following for twenty years. Time for change of scene, Guy and Ellie are delighted to be part of this vibrant, friendly and thriving community!
