About Helen Birnbaum

The influence of 1960’s design is clear in my  ceramic sculptures based on  microscopic images of plants and viruses, curious people and animals.  I have exhibited this thought provoking and humorous work throughout the UK.  In 2014 I was selected as ceramic artist in residence at Liverpool Hope University after graduating with an MA in Ceramic Art & Design from the University of Central Lancashire.  My thesis on pubic art is displayed in both the National Gallery and the National Library of Australia.   I am a Director of  a community arts centre and gallery in Skelmersdale and am an Advocate for FACT Liverpool.
