Helene Barrott is a unique Wire Sculptor working in Steel, Copper and mixed media to create Sculptures of Trees and other organic subjects.
Helene Barrott has lived for the past 30 years in Gloucestershire but originally hails from the Isle of Sheppey in Kent. Her love of trees started young, along with a joy in gardening in general.
Her work delights in the natural architecture of the tree, unadorned and made in raw metal wire these forms are easy to see and appreciate. Her particular love of the Windswept form has been explored on multiple occasions and is one of her most popular subjects. Helene feels that this form is seen in a multitude of variations in every region of the UK from the far north of Scotland to the far south of Cornwall. It always evokes comment and pleasure in those who view it. Often the comments are along the lines of ‘you can almost hear the wind’…and this is what she strives to depict.
Her technique was developed in isolation and produces work unlike any other wire trees ….these sculptures have a fluidity and movement that lends itself to the garden sculpture market as they move naturally in the wind and seem to be alive.
More recently Helene has been exploring other, non tree, organic subjects.
Helene has exhibited in galleries and sculpture parks in Herefordshire and in Gloucestershire. She has also taken part in country shows, garden sculpture exhibitions and one off special exhibitions in the west midlands.
Helene has now become a member of Cotswold Craftsmen and shall be exhibiting along side her fellow guild members at events throughout the year.

What our customers say about Helene’s work
Fabulous works, I have quiet a collection now, I have and will continue to recommend Helene’s works. Prices are very reasonable and a delightful Lady as well.
My husband and I met Helene today at the Three Counties Show. We were blown away by her stand and couldn’t walk by without stopping to talk to Helene herself, who is not only really lovely but very talented! Of course we also bought a very majestic wishing tree which is now sitting very proudly on our dining table – an early anniversary treat to ourselves. It is truly beautiful. Thank you Helene xxx
Amazing quality of work from Helene, and delivery was very swift. Not only would I recommend friends, I will definitely
Can’t fault Helene’s work. Swift and great quality. She listens, is always friendly and produces fantastic work for whatever I want. The trees are something wonderful which I most definitely recommend going to a show to see – pictures never show fully how amazing they look. In all, I would thoroughly recommend!
Beautiful work and very fast delivery. Highly recommended 🙂
