Helen Johannessen

Ceramic artist playing with material qualities and perceptions


Working with surfaces and their effects in clay or glass, using graphical/geometric aesthetics in conjunction with visual illusions. It's important to stop, observe and engage with details.

Helen completed an MA in Ceramics & Glass at the Royal College of Art in July 2017. Taking a departure from functional homeware (she is formerly known as Yoyo Ceramics) her work is taking a new direction towards decorative, sculptural and conceptual. By exploring possibilities in clay she is offering a new way of looking at what ceramics can be.
