Ceramic artist Frances Priest has always been fascinated with pattern and decoration. The parquet pattern on these little bowls is scored into the clay using a scalpel before the glaze is painted on. She borrows her palette from the weather-filled beaches on the island of Sanday, one of the Orkneys, after which each colourway is named. The deep oceanic blues of 'Elsness' are set against a beach-white glaze. 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
