See how this in-demand artisan moves through a typical 24 hours.
Since moving her eponymous studio from Brooklyn to Ridgewood, Queens, last year, potter Helen Levi has managed to stick to her schedule while introducing more regular monthly open studio days—which began earlier this month. The New York-born creative began her career in 2013 after a chance meeting with fashion designer Steven Grossman, at one of his Steven Alan pop-up events in Manhattan. After seeing some of Levi’s pieces, the designer placed an order and put Levi in a position to focus full-time on her passion. Since then, she’s collaborated with creatives like Diane von Furstenberg companies like Subaru, and her work is now sitting pretty in Lyric’s loft at 70 Pine Street in NYC.
For the last 7 years, Levi’s days have often been a balancing act between work, studio visits, and time with friends and her canine sidekick, Bill. We recently caught up with Helen to see how she navigates a particularly busy 24 hours.
