New for the Summer are the Ceramic Wall Portraits

Francesca King`s new work links storytelling and puppetry together to create Ceramic Wall Sculptures. This work focuses on the beauty of the portrait in profile and the containment of personality in the shaping of the ceramic piece. Each form is sculpted and shaped by layers of clay, oxide and velvet under glaze to reveal landscapes, objects, creatures and characters. The portraits are a colourful feast for the eyes and a place to begin a story, especially when the light shines.

`Green & Me`, is a self portrait. I love to include all aspects of city life. For me it is full of woodland walks which reflects York so well. The city finds its presence in the representation of the walls and Minster, never very far from grass land and trees.
