Featured Creatives - Helen Hay

Posted on August 19, 2010 at 10:07 AM

Sculptress Extroidinaire Helen Hay has mastered the ART of RECYCLING.

Her work makes use of old metal objects whether they be outdated farm implements or just pieces of old cars and broken  bicycles. She refashions them into  “objet d‘arts” that are fun, interesting and functional

Her quirky creations are incredibly popular as both decorative and fine art works.

Helen is the first of our weekly featured creatives.

A2Z: Hi Helen, tell us, what is your area of creativity?

Helen: My area of creativity is sculpture, I use reclaimed farm machinery, old tools and car parts to create unique "garden art".

A2Z: Can we ask how old you are? (Completely optional question)

Helen: Age......who cares .........

A2Z: What makes you and your creations unique? (What do you do that no one else does/what do you do better than anyone else etc)

Helen: I like to think my creations are very unique, I never know what I am going to make next, I see bit's of old rusted metal and just know it can be given a new life as something to treasure for years to come. I also like to think I am preserving some of our farming history by saving some of these old bits from the scrap yard.

 

 I don't think I do anything better than anyone else, everyone has their own style that they are good at.

A2Z: What is your biggest creative goal for the moment?

Helen: Sculpture in the making for a public art space, very exciting if it is accepted.

A2Z: What has been your greatest creative achievement to date?

Helen: My greatest creative achievement was having one of my Emu's chosen to be part of a Tafe students exhibit at the Melbourne Garden Show. Her exhibit was all about recycling which is what I do. I visited the show and got a real kick out of standing listening to people's comments about my work, very encourageing.

A2z: Do you have any creative developments/big news that you would like to share?

Helen: Big news is my facebook page "Garden Art by Helen Hay" and a sculpture competition and exhibition myself and Mandy Jones are organizing for November 12th & 14th, 2010, at Jones Winery and Vineyard, Rutherglen.

A2Z: Have you ever had an embarrassing moment or complete disaster with any of your creative works?

Helen: Complete disaster at Lockhart Spirit of the Land 2009, one of my sculptures was dropped when being unloaded and later lost a part, however the wonderful organizers found a welder and had it repaired in time for judging... phew..

A2Z: What would you like to get out of the Art 2 Zee Magazine and/or website?

Helen: Arts 2 Zee will be great for contacts in the art world, greater exposure and good advice....

If you would like to be one of our  Featured Creatives and have your work featured here, or perhaps in the magazine, please contact us here at Art 2 Zee and we'll email you our questionaire. It's FREE

The original dictum said, A penny spar’d is twice got, but it’s adapted over the years for modern English.

Napoleon Bonaparte could relate.
It’s easier to do it yourself rather than try to explain it to someone else.
The Purpose & Function of Aphorism
But there’s no certain magic to sprinkling aphorisms into your writing.
Too many times to count, right.
Brevity is the key.
The meaning.
It’s become one of the most viral memes on the internet.
Washington also said, It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one.
That’s not what you expected, was it.
Finally, All things come to those who wait is a good aphorism we’re all familiar with.
Give it a try!
The term aphorism originates from late Latin aphorismus and Greek aphorismos.

Another success aphorism comes from Chris Grosser.
It’s one of the most recognized aphoristic statements today.

Oftentimes, it makes sense to delegate tasks.
Today, calling someone a Jack of all trades is usually a jab because it implies that their knowledge is superficial.
Their direct, witty approach is what makes these self-evident truths powerful.
How do aphorisms differ from adages and proverbs.
See the difference.
The meaning.

Washington’s message was that it’s wiser to be upfront and deal with the consequences.
The origins of this saying are open for debate, but it’s primarily attributed to Abraham Lincoln.
It originated from Lady Mary Montgomerie Currie’s poem Tout vient a qui sait attendre.

The term aphorism originates from late Latin aphorismus and Greek aphorismos.
If you do, you agree with George Herbert’s famous aphorism from his book, Outlandish Proverbs.
Better safe than sorry is a piece of wisdom from Samuel Lover’s book, Rory O’More.
The idea is simple.

Interestingly enough, this saying was initially intended as a compliment.
It meant that the person was versatile and adept at many things.
Not only that, but you can use aphorisms in your writing to summarize your central theme.
Practice what you preach.

Now compare that proverb to this famous aphorism.

What am I referring to.
This also reminds me of a precept by Sir Edwin Sandys, a politician who helped establish Jamestown, Virginia.
He’s earned that title because he’s authored dozens of aphorisms.
Aphorisms state universal truths about life that encourage reflection.
Aphorisms can act as a guideline to help narrow the focus of your work.

Shifting gears a little, let’s talk about one of the world’s greatest aphorists – Benjamin Franklin.
Let’s talk about that.
And then.
Let’s get started.
Examples of Aphorism in Literature
Don’t count on things that haven’t happened yet because something unexpected could occur.
There is no try.
Washington’s message was that it’s wiser to be upfront and deal with the consequences.
One of his most notable is, An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
Not good.

Another memorable aphorism is, An apple a day keeps the doctor away.
For example.
Too many times to count, right.
It’s a great saying, but it’s not something you’d necessarily repeat over the dinner table.
Don’t count on things that haven’t happened yet because something unexpected could occur.

Take this proverb, for example.
What does it mean.
He knows that Luke should either decide that he can do it or decide to quit.
Yup, you guessed it.
People often use this quote when discussing health, but Franklin was talking about fire safety.
The Purpose & Function of Aphorism
And get this.
An aphorism is a literary device that uses a short, clever saying to express a general truth.
Aphorisms often use metaphors or creative imagery to express ideas.
Don’t count on things that haven’t happened yet because something unexpected could occur.
There is no try.
Sandys said, Honestie the best policie, which in modern English is…
He’s earned that title because he’s authored dozens of aphorisms.
But these days.
Your stories can benefit from this method too.
