Helen Johannessen

collectible objects


Using porcelain and plaster to explore visceral and tactile material surfaces.
Helen creates beautiful and illusionary effects with texture, tones and form. Exploring how material qualities shift with light and capturing movement; engaging with a world of sensory and imaginative landscapes, aiming to silence our overstimulated, digital world; connect and nurture the imagination.

“Predominately led by the making process, I aim to capture that energy in my work. The visceral quality of being a maker is important, I communicate my material skill and imagination through casting.”
