She comes from a family who works with their hands. From her father, a machinist, to a German grandmother who is fond of tole painting. Raised in New Jersey, schooled in Vermont, Lizzie now finds herself settled in the village of Mendocino, where she is surrounded by the natural world.
There’s something so timeless, yet unique, about her ceramics. Lucky for us, she loves making objects for everyday life. Her interest and love of nature’s patterns and the inherent intelligence found in thoughtful design are reflected in everything she does.
Come see, and feel, Lizzie Helbig’s ceramics. Hold her work in your own hands. See if your fingers can hear that beautiful, wild singing. Her show, sunrise/sunset, will be on exhibit for the month of May, 2018, at Northcoast Artists Gallery. You can meet her at the First Friday Opening, May 4th, from 5 pm to 8 pm.
