Clear light is a state of mind which becomes fully manifest only as a consequence of certain sequences or stages of dissolution, where the mind becomes devoid of certain types of obscurations, which are again metaphorically described in terms of sun-like, moonlike and darkness -Dali Llama

Ashley Helvey has collaborated with LUCE, design studio IACOLI AND MCALLISTER, and musician Honey Owens of VALET to create an installation and experience based on the Buddhist concept of the Clear Light Mind. Following the opening she will teach a felting workshop at Luce where you can learn the basic techniques used to transform raw wool into a felt textile. Read more on the UNA site.

Helvey teaches workshops at institutions, museums, and galleries and continues to collaborate with artist and designers on felted installations and performance pieces....
