Helen Restorick

Following a career in medicine and with an additional interest in genetics, Helen's background now helps to inform her work as a glass artist. A creative, yet ordered scientific approach is reflected through into her practice. Her particular interest is geometric design and pattern which will often incorporate biological themes. Carefully constructed and precise work also portrays a sense of fluidity and movement. This is captured in dynamic kiln formed glass vessels and cast pieces. Helen is furthering her work by undertaking the Advanced Practice Course at Richmond Art School.

Current work examines the transformation of linear patterns within glass using heat and gravity to study glass flow. By experimenting with different variables, pattern formation is dramatically altered and harnessed in a variety of ways. The aim is to form new designs which will engage and arrest the viewer.
