CRAFTING A DIFFERENCE VIRTUAL VISIT ON NOW!

Collection – Kirkcaldy Patterns iv by Frances Priest / Cavaliero Finn Gallery

Frances Priest’s current work in clay explores and interprets languages of ornament from different cultures, places and periods in history. The work is heavily influenced by a book she grew up with, The Grammar of Ornament by Owen Jones, first published in 1856.

As a child, Frances read this book from cover to cover, and so began her love of pattern. From her Edinburgh studio Frances creates intricate and colourful ceramic objects that celebrate this fascination for ornament and pattern, using clay as a canvas on which to build richly drawn and layered surfaces of inlaid line, glaze colour and enamel decals. The results are intricate and beautiful.

Frances’ work has been acquired by a number of museums including the National Museums of Scotland Edinburgh, The Fitzwilliam Museum Cambridge, The Victoria & Albert Museum London, The International Museum of Ceramics Faenza, Italy and The International Museum of Contemporary Ceramics Ichon Province, Korea. Frances obtained a 1st Class BA Hons and her PG Diploma in Ceramics from Edinburgh College of Art in June 1998/9. She is a QEST scholar 2020.
