The Artist - Helen Thompson
Holy Smoke sculptures are handcrafted from textiles, paper, wire and thread. Through a fascination and admiration of dogs, the making process has evolved, combining a Fine Art background with a passion for textiles and stitching. Layering scraps of fabric to create fragile, threadbare textures with hanging threads and raw edges, imperfections deployed to illustrate the human hand in an attempt to represent dogs' unique spirits, character and sometimes melancholy and physical fragility.
