Caren Helm

My work in clay uses all four elements of the Classic Phases of Matter: Earth, Water, Air, Fire. I like to think that this connects me to ancient people–when I put my hands in clay, I can hear them stir. My hope is to bring this primordial energy into your home.

My philosophy is to find joy in everyday life…play a little, love a lot, and be lively. I extend an open invitation to all to visit my studio and watch me work. It’s fun to see a lump of soft clay transformed into something useful, beautiful and permanent. And BEWARE: I throw things!
