Helen Bailes Ceramics

http://www.helenbailesceramics.co.uk/
Helen’s work is inspired by the forms, patterns and dynamics found in the natural world, such as fern fronds, shells, the movement of water and the ever changing sky. Through the sensual handling of clay the natural process of growth, containment and disintegration are evoked.

Felt and Beads

I now delight in combining this new technique of making lightweight felts called “Nuno Felt.” I make a felted fabric with characteristics quite different from traditional felt by adding the soft delicate merino wool to a base of silk. This new website shows some of my latest beautifully coloured scarves.
