Helen Beard

Helen creates her bespoke designs in her London studio. The porcelain pots are individually thrown on a potter’s wheel then hand painted.
This painting process for her work is notably difficult. To create the freehand outlines, Helen has developed a unique relief-print method using paper impregnated with black ceramic stains. Colour is then added as washes which are mixed using a palette of underglaze stains. It’s a real labour of love as the larger pieces can take days or even weeks to get right, but this technique allows her to create her beautiful hand painted porcelain.
