About Helaina Sharpley

“It all began with a good cup of tea”
–Helaina Sharpley

Helaina started her journey studying a BA in Design Crafts at Hereford College of Art and Design. Tea became an obsession there and she particularly loved the elegance of Edwardian Architecture. It was here, where her love of tea and the Edwardian way of life connected, this became the main feature in her work.

Helaina creates 2d and 3d wirework pieces for galleries, shops and personal commission, in the UK and internationally.

A few facts about Helaina…

Helaina loves the old way of life and believes in doing things the right way. She is inspired by tradition, old fashion values and having afternoon tea in beautiful surroundings, preferably from the Edwardian period…

Illustrations turned into wire works after a college lecturer placed some wire into her hands because he wanted Helaina to make something in 3D and she kept drawing. The rest is… ‘wirework history’.

Helaina is three times winner of ‘The Wow Factor’ at The British Craft Trade Fair.

Hockney owns two pieces of work from Helaina’s collection.
