Wirral based artist Helen Smith works primarily with kiln formed glass, using the material to explore the interplay of light, surface and texture. She draws much of her inspiration from the wide horizon and beautiful light of the Dee estuary, and from the contrasts to be found at the boundaries of water, land and sky.
After a first career in IT during which she maintained a passion for art and textiles, Helen graduated in 2013 from Glyndwr University in Wrexham where she studied Applied Arts, specialising in glass. Her degree show work was selected for the annual exhibition of the Society of Designer Craftsmen at the Mall Galleries in London.
Helen is pleased to be able to welcome visitors into her own studio for the first time this year. Come along and see how it’s done!
