Helena lacy is a London based Sculptor and Ceramicist.
Graduated from Wimbledon College of Art, with a degree in Technical Arts and Special Effects for Stage and Screen.
Helena creates abstract sculptures from clay usually based on the female body as a form. She likes to take separate aspects of the body that are traditionally feminine such as the curves of breasts and hips - these parts are then put back together, creating an abstracted expression of the female body. This is the theme behind a lot of her work, being re-inventive with a single form.
The themes behind her vases are about playing with heights and levels and creating unique practical sculptures that are for displaying both succulents and cut flowers together. She draws inspiration for these vases from the Japanese art of flower arrangement, Ikebana. All vases are coil built.
She is based in The Arches Studios in Peckham.
