The Bowes Museum is delighted to showcase the most recent work by the Edinburgh based artist potter Frances Priest.

The ceramicist is inspired by different cultures, places and periods in history and she creates intricate and colourful objects that celebrate her fascination for ornament and pattern.

She uses her interests as a platform to engage in new settings and environments and her works at the Museum will be nestled among historic Chinese and Japanese porcelain from our own collection, selected by curator Howard Coutts.

Using The Grammar of Ornament by Owen Jones, as a stepping stone into exploration, Frances uses clay as a canvas on which she builds richly drawn and layered surfaces of inlaid line, glaze colour and enamel decals.
