Ceramic Seed Pod X by Frances Pelly. Exploring the parallels between pottery and sculpture, this unique piece first took root in Frances’ many sketches of botanic forms. Observing the growth and change throughout the seasons punctuates Frances’ daily life on the Orkney Islands, inspiring her to depict these influences in ceramic form.
Dimensions: Height: 7cm, Width: 12cm
Care Instructions: Wipe with cloth
This piece was handmade by pressing clay into moulds and adding leaves or flowers to the surface. Before drying, Frances further shapes the form to make each ‘Pod’ unique, then carves, rasps, and burnishes the surface to create the desired effect.
Frances Pelly has worked as a practicing sculptor since completing her postgraduate art degree in Dundee, having resided in Orkney since she was invited to be an artist in residence at the Highland Park Distillery more than 30 years ago. Frances draws a lot of inspiration from her surroundings, exploring the local land, seascape and flora in her unique forms. Frances has also travelled internationally with her work, having also completed notable residencies at Fort William Library, The Eden Project and on Baffin Island.
