Helen creates individual decorative pieces inspired by the Devon countryside and sea shore.  Porcelain is used for vases, bowls, earring stands and light-holders and stoneware for larger garden pieces.

One of the roles of being a full member of 14, The Gallery is being involved with the day to day running and manning of the Gallery. The various jobs are shared out between members and monthly meetings are held to discuss any issues and also to look at the work of potential members or associates interested in joining.  Being part of the cooperative is a good support network, with more experienced artists offering advice to the newer ones; an opportunity for the new, less experienced artists to dip a toe, to test the water and gain some much needed confidence. It's great to see the excitement when they make their first sale and watch them grow in confidence. Coming face to face with your customers is very satisfying and a great motivator.
