"I was lucky enough to go to an elementary school which taught pottery in art class. Ms. Melonis would have us spend about a month hand building items, glazing and then taking them home to show off to our family. For me, it was the highlight of the school year, and after becoming an adult, I always wanted to get back to it. But it took years before I finally had the courage to sign up for a pottery class where I found my way back to clay, and the joy of working on a wheel. I have apprenticed for three potters, and have been teaching classes for over a year, now working at Northampton Pottery. I enjoy working with porcelain and stoneware, creating functional items for every day use. I love teaching people about clay and what you can create with it while striving to push my students out of their comfort zones to expand on their creativity."
Helen has been teaching since January 2019 and is an integral part of Northampton Pottery!
