About Helen Higgins Ceramics

Helen Higgins Ceramics

Helen Higgins aka 'creativearth', manipulator of clay and other lovely art materials....

I currently work from home in a small studio in the historic South Wales town of Merthyr Tydfil. I have a background in window dressing and figurine painting and also taught Secondary Art and Design. I studied Ceramics at Howard Gardens in Cardiff, proudly achieving a 1st class BA Hons Degree in 1997.

Recent work features animal and human figures wearing ‘dress-up’ costumes or ‘onesies’ and sometimes wearing hooded tops or masks. I have 3 young daughters who all love to dress up and 'role-play', taking on a new persona or character. I am fascinated by this idea of disguise or incognito.

The figures are often an analogy for the way that we as people often hide a fragile self-esteem behind a robust façade or disguise, pretending to be what we are not.

My ceramic figures are both endearing and intriguing, they seem to have their own personal character and mannerisms revealing their own narrative.
