I am a ceramicist and glass artist. I love to be hands on rolling and wedging, painting and mixing clay! Last Autumn I began a tile production line, focusing on feature tiles in standard tile sizes to complement any kitchen or bathroom installation. With each changing season my work explores a new path this year’s `Summer Collection` has seen the production of delicate flower, teapot and butterfly brooches as well as ceramic flower necklaces arranged with sliver wire and snake chains. My love of colour has drawn me to velvet under glazes giving the ceramic a delightful freshness and pictorial detail. I love to be hands on rolling and wedging, mixing and smoothing clay it is a great way to work.

Francesca`s 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.
The natural world with its simplicity of colour and shape inspire Francesca`s Jewellery. Each season brings a new Collection of delicate flower Brooches, silver and ceramic Necklaces and Earrings.
*The Tile collections reflect Francesca`s love of storytelling available to order in standard sizes to complement any kitchen or bathroom installation
