...where mud turns into pots
  • Helga C. Letourneau is a potter, ceramic artist, painter, supporter and lover of art.
"I can't remember a time when I was not involved with art. Whether it was music, museum and theatre visits, taking metal  sculpture, neon, wood or pottery classes, listening to poetry or story readings, art was always in my life."

Helga C. Letourneau maintained interests in various media:

  • metal sculpture and welding in San Diego, CA,
  • neon art under Christian Schiess at Roberson Center for the Arts and Sciences, Binghampton, NY,
  • photography,
  • pottery 
  • painting (acrylic, cold wax and oil, pastel, ink) 

She began hand building pottery while living in Hawaii where she participated in a workshop with the great Toshiko Takaezu and created raku, pit fire and gas fired work. After moving to Virginia she continued working with clay at the Liberty Town Arts Center in Fredericksburg.

After retiring and moving to Florida Helga opened her own studio where she fires her work in an electric kiln at mid range, cone 5/6, and uses both hand working and wheel throwing techniques. She mixes most of her glazes, and works on large mosaic pieces, integrating ceramics and mosaic art.

She also started painting and had her work shown and sold at J. Leon gallery, Artful Things gallery, Estelle's, Artel gallery,  the Emerald Coast Theatre Center, East End gallery, Sacred Heart Hospital Art Exhibit and County and State Fairs.

Helga is a member of various art groups in the Florida panhandle and is determined in producing work that is original, appealing and affordable.
