Virginia ceramic artist Helena Arouca is a master instructor of ikebana, the Japanese art of flower arranging. As a teacher of ikebana for over three decades, she has encountered the ongoing need for new and unique vases. In 2013, Arouca began taking pottery classes to be able to make her own vases. Through a lot of grit and patience, her dream has come true, and she now expresses her love for flowers and the art of pottery by making her signature One of a Kind vases.

Inspired by the scenic beauty of the Shenandoah Valley and the historic allure of Lexington's antique brick walkways, their work encapsulates the essence of nature and heritage. Their diverse collections, including the trademarked Historic Brick Collection, not only reflect their artistic vision but also serve as powerful symbols for various causes, igniting meaningful conversations and fostering awareness through the language of art.
