Hello, my name is Helene Fielder
A lifelong journey in clay…
After three decades working with clay, I’m still excited when the kiln lid opens. The clay experiment is still in progress. From the concept on paper, construction and glaze testing. I never stop learning and discovering the diversity of this media. Ceramics is still a pathway to innovation, without forgetting it’s value in centuries of tradition.
Right now I’m working with cone 6 stoneware using hand-building and wheel-thrown techniques. Using different colored clay bodies and textures to promote glaze color interest.
If you notice I make lots of teapots functional and nonfunctional. I find teapots fascinating. They have incredible line and movement, reminding me of the human form.
