Helene Fielder: Balancing Act
November 6, 2010 – June 12, 2011
Mississippi Sound Welcome Center Reception Area
Helene Fielder was born in Rive de Gier, France and became a naturalized American citizen at age 10. She has maintained a full time studio in Mississippi for the past seventeen years, creating in both clay and metal. She has participated in juried shows and taught both pottery and silversmithing internationally, including jewelry and pottery instruction for three years in Giessen, Germany. The ceramic sculptures on display contain hand-built and wheel thrown components, fired to cone 6. Block print carving was used as imprint texture, with rich surfaces created with stain, latex and wax resist, sometimes airbrushed with layers of glaze and stain.
