Helaina Sharpley

Helaina Sharpley is a designer-maker producing elegant 2D and 3D wire sculptures/illustrations.

After graduating from Herefordshire College of Art and Design, with a BA (honours) degree in Design Crafts, in 2006, Helaina returned home and now works from her studio in Mirfield, West Yorkshire.

Her award winning wirework has since been exhibited across the UK.

Everything related to tea and tea drinking - tea cups and saucers,tea sets and tea parties are the artists main passion (verging on obsession!)  And therefore this has been a recurring theme in her wirework.

However, Helaina now also makes wirework based on elegant Edwardian architecture (although she admits this is just an extension of the tea drinking theme!)

The artist is always open to discussing new ideas and welcomes commissions.

"So long, and thanks for all the fish"

After very many years of craft&design we've decided that we'd like to retire and so in 86 days we will close the craft&design website, including craft&design Online and the craft&design Selected Makers and Craft and Design Month websites. We've had a brilliant 35 years and would like to thank all our readers, advertisers, writers, contributors and website visitors for their support throughout that time. Our very best wishes to you all for the future - Angie and Paul.
