Frances loves to make pots that are joyful to use as part of everyday rituals to encourage a sense of comfort and warmth. She is a great admirer of Medieval pottery and hopes to create friendly forms in an expressive manner with generous curves, slipped surfaces and playful handles. She is fascinated with people’s relationships to material objects and loves to leave traces of the maker on her pieces to encourage a dialogue with the user. She is currently based in Manchester, has a studio space at the Manchester Ceramics Collective and teaches throwing at Sunken Studio in Leeds. Frances will be exhibiting her work at Wardlow Mires Pots and Food Festival in September 2023.
