Helga Grobel began her career as an artist in the 1960s working with clay. She became a proficient potter making bowls, plates, teapots, urns and hand built objects. In the1980s and 1990s she focused on making jewelry using her own one-of-a-kind Raku beads. Her necklaces became multi-media with the addition of woven fiber and by adding beads from around the world along with her own hand forged brass and copper elements.

      Her interest in fiber art led her to create woven and stitched fiber collages that have been exhibited. In addition to fiber art, she was introduced to hand made paper in the 1990s and has recently returned to this art form making one of kind paper sculptures.

 

     These paper sculptures are products of her free-flowing, creative process using paper products especially soft egg cartons which are recycled into pulp and processed in a manner similar to clay.

 Helga had a nomadic life (courtesy of the US State Dept.). She has shared studios in several European countries and in the US, enjoying the interaction with artists of many different cultures. She has also been influenced by beadwork and fiber art of American Indians, Australian Aborigines and the African Masai.

Helga is a resident of the District of Columbia and a part time resident of Stony Creek NY where she maintains her studio.
