Nock, Helen

Helen Nock’s work explores the boundaries between innovative mosaic method and overall construction to achieve a cohesive surface from a variety of rigid and diverse materials.

From the original ideas she allows for unexpected changes and growth – often influenced by the materials; their individual qualities, history, or the places she finds them. The main material of this collection is reclaimed roofing slate, glass and metal; details include shards of found glass, rocks and studio ceramic. The bases are galvanised steel forged by blacksmith, Nathan Bennett, from Helen’s designs.
