About the Artist:
Helen Prior’s ceramics and textiles are deeply rooted in the natural world.
These unique creations are a cross-pollination of the leaves and wildflowers of the Hudson Valley combined with stylized flowers and patterns from Helen’s historical textile archive. Her hand-crafted designs are achieved by cutting fine lines and pressing found objects into the rolled-out clay, creating striking super-plants and intricate patterns that are both modern and beautiful.
All clay pieces are created in her studio in Kingston New York.
