Helen Harrison Ceramics
Brighten up your morning tea or coffee with this charming mug and milk pourer from ceramicist Helen Harrison.
Individually hand-thrown on the potters wheel and decorated with layered oxides, decals, slips and imprints, each piece of Helen's work is unique and intriguing. In the wet porcelain clay surfaces, Helen makes subtle indents with her fingers and impresses textures, which all encourage the holder to continue exploring the surface through sight and touch.
These objects are a delight to hold and make for perfect functional tableware, with their smooth high-gloss and food-safe glaze on the exterior and interior, they are entirely safe for use but as with any handmade ceramicware they are best washed by hand and not advised for use in the dishwasher or microwave.
Helen's Oxide Decal Collection is inspired by combing the shoreline for lost treasures and sea-worn pottery. The collection imbues a sense of Chinoiserie or patterned ceramic tiles worn under foot, conjuring memories of a forgotten tea service from childhood or a beloved Victorian artefact. The mosaic-like appearance evokes a new story each time the pieces are used, intriguing the observer and allowing them to create their own story.
The mug features imagery of koi fish, bees, leaves and flowers, in green and pink with splashes of blue and orange on porcelain white, with a vibrant orange interior.
The pourer features imagery of blue flowers and green leaves on porcelain white, with a salmon pink/red interior.
ABOUT THE MAKER: Helen Harrison graduated from the Royal College of Art in 1995, and creates kilnworks ceramics individually designed and hand-crafted in her Devon studio. Helen enjoys making functional tableware and finds 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. She likes to make pieces that are part of this experience and may spark a comment or conversation. The way an object looks and feels to hold and to use are important considerations for Helen, the aim is to make tableware that will be both enjoyable to look at and fun to use.
