Frances Smiths - Ceramics

There is a joy in clay that I try to set free.

Frances works mainly with porcelain clays which she wheel throws and hand decorates in beautifully

simple black line work.

Fran also uses bold under-glaze colours in a wood-cut style which she augments with coloured

lustres in a third firing.

Fran creates large one-off sculptural pieces which are generally built on the wheel, their shape

altered and then finally the surface is incised to produce a sculptural relief.

In the past, Fran created elegant, traditional ceramic forms with the beautiful Celadon and Chun


Teaching Pottery

Fran teaches pottery techniques from her studio on the south coast of NSW.


Fran regularly promotes and publishes about ceramics online and in print.
