HELEN ASHLEY DESIGNS
H elen Ashley is an illustrator in paint and porcelain.
She originally trained in the UK as a textile designer and now works and teaches in her studio in St.Peters , Sydney creating her quirky range of ceramics and home wares .
Helen hand builds and sculpts in locally made porcelain, liking this smooth but often temperamental medium as the nearest clay to paper which she then loves to illustrate and decorate.
Helen is inspired by her daily dog walks , collecting treasure and photographing her natural surroundings . She pushes found objects like feathers and shells into clay and creates artworks with them.
Helen is probably best known for her fun fruit ceramics , turning each piece into useful art or tableware or her pet portrait spoons, each one crafted with love and one of a kind. Helen does about 5 portraits a week and they are then delivered all over the world.
