Helen Robins

I am a ceramic artist based in coastal Perth, Western Australia. Originally I trained as a teacher and did further study in behavioural science. After a lifelong interest in clay I established my studio in 2015.

I work with paperclay which allows me to build complex and delicate forms. My current artwork aims to explore the ongoing synergy between the environment and inner self and the impact of life’s disturbances on our personal identity. Inspired by coastal and oceanic forms, my sculptures are built by layering individual pieces of clay over a central core to symbolize our constructs. I later add other materials to represent the unavoidable discord that exists in our lives.
