Ceramic artist Frances Priest is primarily concerned with pattern and detail. The pattern on these little bowls is inspired by a classic parquet design. She borrows her palette of glazes from the weather-filled beaches on the island of Sanday, one of the Orkneys, after which each colourway is named. The rusty brown of 'Catasand' references the kelp - 'tangles' in Orkney - found on the shoreline. Themselves collectable, Priest sees these bowls as containers for precious things.
The bowls that Priest has created for The Garnered are beautiful objects in their own right but Priest imagines that they might also be used as holders for keepsakes or collections of precious objects.Visit Designer Page
