The organic, hand-crafted quality of her ceramics is what first inspired Helen Prior to start using clay as a sketchbook and canvas for her fabric designs. Her process begins by creating clay ‘manuscripts’ that are physically carved, cut, stamped, hand-glazed, and fired. These ‘manuscripts’ became the building block for her creations. This multi-medium design approach is what allows Helens forms and patterns to work seamlessly across fabrics, ornaments, wallpapers, and furniture.
