From a small cottage in rural South Warwickshire Frances now hand builds ceramics and paints pictures alongside her current practice as a studio jeweller. Utilising ancient mould making, lost wax, carving and casting techniques, she creates one of a kind, bespoke pieces incorporating porcelain with recycled semi-precious and precious metals. She is also working on The Labyrinth, a long-term land art project on ancient ground which began in 2004 and is due to complete in 2019.
