Lava Vase – Laterite

The ‘Lava Vase’ series stems from wanting to turn my sculptures into functional objects whilst keeping the primary element: the form. The lava vase serves as a representation of this form. Each unique coil built vase illustrates patterns & textures found in nature. My work has a sensory aim – using familiar natural shapes to create feelings of comfort. Lava is an all consuming natural phenomenon – one that is a threat but one that we can derive aesthetic pleasure from.
These vases are an exploration of this experience.
Each vase is named after a mineral or Igneous & metamorphic rocks.

All products are handmade and so each product comes with subtle differences a reminder of each ones uniqueness.

Helena Lacy

Helena Lacy is a ceramic artist who lives and works in London. She graduated from Wimbledon College of Art, with a degree in Technical Arts and Special Effects.

Known for her tactile hand-built sculptures and vases, Helena takes inspiration from the natural world. Her work reflects the textures and colours found in organic objects. Even down to the clay mixes she creates, she wants to celebrate clay and its origin.

The female body and nature have always been the main themes in her work and sensation is at the centre of it. The way a sculpture feels in your hands is very important to her and she uses shape, texture and repetition to achieve this. She wants her work to be touched and be pleasing to hold. Her practice lends a playful approach to ceramics – learning with our hands, interacting and discovering.

Helena has created a collection called fingō, a series of sculptures and vases based on the female body. Aspects of the body that are traditionally feminine (such as curves) are reassembled to create an abstract expression of the female form. 

She creates her work from her studio in Shepherds Bush, West London.
