Challenging standard approaches to design, Helena Seget’s passion lies in creating idiosyncratic pieces for interior spaces. Working in ceramics, her current portfolio includes shelves, floor tiles, tables, chairs (porcelain/wood mix), wall-art and ‘sustainable stationery’.
Trained in photography and ceramics, Helena followed careers in theatre costume design, teaching and advertising before setting up in her own studio as a ceramic artist and designer. She was inspired to start her practice following a trip to Amsterdam and a visit to the Dutch design company, Droog Design.
Helena will be showing:
Undulating Shelves: These unusual shelves reflect Helena’s ambition to marry a conceptual approach with function and design. They echo wave-forms in their shape, but are still intended as a form of functional wall furniture, on which one might place small idiosyncratic items. Created from earthenware clay using slip casting the shelves are available in three sizes, a range of colours and the option of crackle glaze.
Table Stationery: This range of place-names is handmade in finest porcelain to grace any table-setting. Simply pencil in the name of the guest on to the item, and it is customized and more importantly, re-usable. Perfect as wedding gifts or gifts for a family occasion; the range comes in three varieties:
- Embroidered: The embroidered range of place-names includes a traditional rose motif and stag’s head. Each place name is embroidered by hand.
- Figurine: This range of place-names features elements of ‘found’ figures adding an element of eccentricity to each one.
- Willow: These place-names are a contemporary take on the willow pattern dinner service.
Each place-name is hand-made and can therefore be customized and re-designed to suit the buyer’s wishes.
