Potato Patch Treasure – Helen Anne Taylor


‘I recently found a shard of pottery whilst digging my potato patch. I liked the pattern and the colours so decided I would use it as inspiration for a new print. Most of the houses I have lived in have been old and the main type of broken pottery I have found has been blue willow pattern, now I live in a to me modern house built in the 1970’s I found it interesting that the discarded ephemera is of the more recent past.’

About the Artist

Helen Taylor is a printmaker working in Lino and woodcut, often combining woodcut prints with hand-colouring in watercolour.

Taylor is inspired by the natural world, especially trees and plants, and the ways in which we influence and change our natural landscapes, the effects of human activity, the relationship between organic and built environments.

Her art explores the natural world of plants, and the amazing variety of colour and shape, the sheer diversity of what can grow in our own back gardens. Plants which are bred and live in ‘captivity’ a possible future for many plant species, and for our experience of them, certainly those which may not be able adapt to long term changes to their environment.
