The latest is Helen Roberts - Helen describes herself as a graduate in Contemparary Crafts, working with textiles and ceramics, she uses a variety of techniques to produce mixed media imagery based pieces.

I love the work she has done with maps and postcards, stitching the lines of the map and the hand written letters on the postcards. I see it as retracing the steps of journey from the past and re writing all those words from lives past, I cant help but think of the stories behinds these journeys , wonderful evocative work.
Her ceramic work using delicate fabrics, laces and silks to make impressions with in porcelain are a wonderfully playing with ideas of fragility.
I hope you enjoy her work too xxxx
