Helen Earl – Short, careful steps

Exhibition and Shows

12 Sep 2019 to 3 May 2020

Ceramic artist, Helen Earl, has created a garden of intricately detailed porcelain flowers that represent the changing landscape of the Adderton site and flowers of relevance to its inhabitants over time.

The delicacy yet purposefulness of Helen’s creations also reflect the enduring wisdom within advice given by Catherine McAuley in 1841.

Let us take one day only in hand, at a time, merely making a resolve for tomorrow, thus we may hope to get on taking short, careful steps, not great strides – Catherine McAuley, 1841

Take time to sit and enjoy the arrangement of these beautiful flowers and plant forms and their significance in Mary Cecilia’s Room.
