I am a ceramic artist living in Windmill Hill. I studied fine art at Bretton Hall College, West Yorkshire where Ceramics was my main discipline. I draw inspiration from a wide range of influences. My work is mainly sculptural using hand building techniques. In the last year I have returned to working in wood as well as clay. My recent work has been particularly influenced by the natural world and the human form.
Stone, metal and wood abstract sculpture informed by art and science
including recently commissioned work.
Vivi Cuevas works in series or “families” of oil-painted clay sculptures that grow from an unplanned beginning and celebrate the joyful abandon of creativity. The experience of motherhood, yoga, spirituality, environmental awareness, mixed with her love of colour, the human form, a sense of fun and playfulness, create figures that bring pertinent and contemporary messages in an attractive and enjoyable way. The sculptures, which are infused with hip sweetness and cheeky playfulness, focus on the positive side of human nature and tickle our inner child.
Sculpture in stone, wood and metal. Looking for the unseen within materials, while exploring stillness, symbolism and, possibly, creating space for reflection.
Influences: Brancusi; Frederick Franck; my yoga and movement practice; Cornwall; standing stones; spirit; materials and textures; dawn; water; Japan; the Unknown
"I work from the unknown, from the material, from the inside........"

Line and Space are central to Helen’s work. She draws in two and three dimensions, using a variety of materials.Her drawings are often investigations into the overlapping processes and visual qualities of sculpture and drawing.
Helen’s wire sculptures of the human form are introspective drawings in three dimensions.
The sculptural lines and the open space defined by them present a continually changing visual experience.
This body of work consists of enamelled copper corsets, screen prints and a screen printed hand-bound book entitled; 'The Older Boy's Book of Mathematical Curves'. I am attempting to show the beauty and elegance of mathematics together with the restrictions imposed by its formal logic and conventions.
