Helen Harrison studied Art and Design at Loughborough College of Art, specialising in ceramics and gaining a B.A. Honours. She then went on to the Royal College of Art, graduating with a Master of Arts degree. In 1996 Helen formed Kilnworks, a ceramic workshop designing and making functional tableware, widely exhibiting throughout the UK. Helen currently lives in Devon and is a selected member of the Devon Guild of Craftsmen.
Helen says “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.”
