“Experiment always...organic, intuitive motion. Walks along the shore to see what the tide rolls up. Paint and draw in between” - Helen Nock

“Marks, makers, mindful, memories, journey” - Sinclair Taylor

Helen Nock’s furniture and sculpture emerges from a balanced relationship between finding and imagining.  Her work needs to be planned and functionally feasible, but her highly individual surfaces are inspired by memories, thoughts and feelings; ideas evoked and the actual materials she is drawn to. The majority of the 3D surfaces are formed slate reclaimed from local Somerset yards and Cornwall, sea-worn glass, ship-wrecked pottery, durable metal, and anything else interesting she acquires. She also uses stained and slab glass for special effects.
Helen’s background is in painting. She gained a BA Honours degree in fine Art as a mature student, and prior to that she was a self-taught ceramicist. Higher education unexpectedly opened a door to teaching for a number of years before embarking on her full-time practice. 
Helen’s work is in private collections across Europe, Canada and the US.  She participates in one or two good exhibitions a year, and private commissions form the bulk of her patronage.
She also runs workshops from her studio.
