Helen Otterson finds inspiration for her biomorphic forms in the organic growth and changes of cells, both in the human encounter with disease and the succulents of her native California landscape. She writes, “Life is composed of the same basic elements and the same goals—i.e. the survival of life. Both of my inspirational sources live in harsh environments.” Her botanical and biologic forms use nature’s repetitive, recursive, and fractal patterns to create striking shapes. Combinations of materials such as clay and glass or bronze showcase the rich surfaces and bright colors found in nature, celebrating the beauty of the natural world.
