Helen Levi has worked with clay since she was a kid and has always found it to be an art with a great release as well as a unique utility. Her background is in photography and she still pursues this along with her ceramic work, which gives her pieces a great sense of balance and perspective. Helen was raised between her main residence in the East Village in NYC and her family's country home in upstate NY where she was able to experience utmost isolation. Her works are an expression of the extreme polarities that she was influenced by with this contrast in settings.
These trays are a great example: the glazes contrast and drips over the dark brown earthenware clay nicely and create a beautiful color block highlighting the dark brown clay. Chose between glazes: navy, white, or forest green with a hint of blue. Hand thrown, each tray varies in size and shape for an organic collection that is perfect for multi use. We imagined that these would be used as spoon rests, incense trays, or candle dishes but certainly the use options don't stop there. Dishwasher and microwave safe. With a slightly smooshed edge, have designed the all around best little tray.
*Trays are organic in shape and measure between 5"-7" in diameter
