Using Kilnformed & Cast Glass techniques Helen Slater creates unique figurative Glass pieces for gallery exhibition, both Nationally and Internationally.
In addition to this Helen also produces one off sculptural pieces to Public & Private commission.
Based in Oxfordshire, 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.
Helen makes one-off sculptural vessels, by working on ideas that originate from studies of seed pods and has previously based her work on a variety of natural forms. Such as the seeds of the Lotus flower, which create classical shapes similar to amphorae and other more native and familiar plants such as Dandelions and Poppies.
Helen uses a variety of making techniques such as coiling, slabs, press moulds, slumping and throwing.
I work for a Public Relations company, representing a well known beer brand. We are looking to recruit a sculptor who can recreate several famous and well known landmarks from Oxfordshire and the Midlands - where the brand was first brewed - using branded bottle/cans/glasses.
We are looking to create five sculptures that could then be used to gain some great press coverage for the brand and the sculptor involved.
Situated in the historic market town of Woodstock, Creative Art Gallery offers an eclectic mix of contemporary fine art, specialising in Original Artwork, Limited Edition Prints and Sculptures by some of the biggest names within the contemporary art world
I am a Visual Communications graduate with a strong background working on a public art projects in collaboration with community groups, public bodies and schools. Most of my projects involve the group I am working with strongly in the planning, creation and delivery of the final artwork. I also work as a commercial photographer and writer and deliver workshops and formal lessons on traditional and digital photography and IT.
I work in 3dimensions, primarily in wood, both carving and constructing. I also use lead, copper and fired clay in conjunction with wood. In winter I do a fair amount of live-willow work for private and public clients and also use willow to make giant-puppets, carneval heads, etc., with varied groups. I have worked extensively, indoors and out, with a range of community groups, adults and children.
I exhibit regularly in and around Oxford; the last time, in 2008, was at the Woodstock Museum, with Joanna Gilmore.
I work as a freelance artist producing my own work; an important part of my practice is working with others; sharing my skills and facilitating others to express themselves through paint, drawing and sculpture. I has worked on lots of varied projects, focusing on engendering the work of others. I work and exhibit all around the country, keeping my work and projects fresh; the most important thing for me is for participants of my workshops to come away with a new and interesting experience. I love exploring ideas and giving others the skills and techniques to explore their own.
I studied at the Central School of Art, London and as a postgraduate at the Slade School of Fine Art. I was awarded a Boise Travel Scholarship to Mexico and Guatemala, and since then there has been a continuing relationship between travel and my work. More recently I won a Rome Fellowship for travel and study based at the British School at Rome in Italy . I have worked primarily on canvas and paper, but over last few years I have been working in metals producing interior and exterior wall-mounted relief-sculptures.
My work is included in many corporate and public collections.
