Helen Hughes

“The alchemy is always a magical combination of the elements”

She attended her first Summer Do Art School at the Quarry Arts Centre nearly 20 years ago which sparked a passion for working with clay and experimenting with various forms of firing techniques and methods.

Helen hand builds and shapes all of her sculptures which is what makes all of them unique., she is well known for her female goddess forms, water features and heavily textures vessels.

She has taught primitive firing techniques in Malaysia and Europe and has exhibited widely throughout New Zealand. Her works range in scale from small pieces to very large life sized works.

All of Helen’s works can be displayed both indoors and out. Helen’s elegant clay sculptures are on display and for sale through her studio, in the Quarry Co-op Shop and also around the Quarry grounds.
