latest series of screenprints, developing themes of feathers and petals, flowers and birds.

Recent work – screenprints – made using original pen drawings and papercuts.

The first two prints – hybrid lily beetle – are from the “Owl Service” series, concerned with subjective interpretation of images and anthropomorphism.

Plate by Christopher Dresser http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Owl_Service

Plate by Christopher Dresser

This plate, designed by Christopher Dresser, was the inspiration for Alan Garner’s book The Owl Service, published in 1967, a creative, contemporary interpretation of the Welsh myth of Blodeuwedd.  The legend concerns a woman created from flowers by a Welsh wizard.  In Garner’s tale three teenagers find themselves reenacting the story. They first awaken the legend by finding a set of plates (a “dinner service”) with an owl pattern; this gives the novel its title.

Louise Bradley’s drawings on the plates come from the idea of interpretation of image as also seen in her recent screenprints.  Louise’s graphics, full of mystery and allusion, match the sinuous forms of Helena’s hand-crafted plates to create a homage to the original owl ‘service’.
