About Helen Slater

Helen Slater creates unique figurative Kiln formed Glass pieces for gallery exhibition, both Nationally and Internationally. In addition to this Helen also produces one off sculptural pieces to Public and Private commission. Based in Oxfordshire, Helen`s work is predominately figurative. Within her current work she explores the notion of environment, whether this is her Home surroundings, Public Spaces, or the nature of our impact on the environments we encounters. She is particularly interested in our human relationship with different places, how we perceive spaces and bring our own personal resonance to them. This maybe the memories and emotional associations which relate to an event or happening, or the physical impact or traces we can leave on these places. To capture these associations Helen creates her own glass environments or narratives which allude to these feelings. Objects individually modelled and set within each piece bring symbolism to the scenes which suggest an emotional connection or glass drawings are floated within blocks capturing a particular place in time. Each piece is uniquely composed and tells a story, coloured glass is also used to enhance these associations. The quality of cast glass allows Helen to create a sense of captured moments, a nostalgia or recollection of a particular place or setting, giving the works an airy ethereal quality of memories past. From her workshop in Kingham, Oxfordshire, she takes great pride in providing a personal bespoke service, creating original stunning sculptural pieces for Home and Garden in addition to works for Gallery Exhibition.

Biography / CV of Helen Slater

Helen Slater`s Biography
Based in The Midlands, Helen Slater`s Art draws inspiration from the figurative form and its perception within changing environments. By using a mixture of techniques similar to those used in bronze casting and some specially developed by Helen herself, through years of research, she is able to produce stunning one off Art pieces. These unique glass pieces vary in scale from dramatic life size figures, to be displayed outdoors, to delicate tabletop casts for interiors.

From her workshop, she takes great pride in providing a personal bespoke service, creating original stunning Glass Sculptural pieces for Home and Garden in addition to works for Gallery Exhibition.
