Fra’s ceramics evokes the beauty of Francesca's hometown nature in Sardinia. The artist, as Italian from a very small island in the Mediterranean Sea, creates pieces inspired by La Maddalena archipelago colours, plants and herbs.
Her ceramic pieces explore the tension between functionality and art. Shapes are organic with highly textured surfaces, created using lace, plants, textile and Indian hand carved woodblock imprinting.
All the products are functional and designed for homeware and home decor. They fit in the ceramic homeware range of products while being unique ceramic art pieces.
Her last collection is called “The Mediterranean Garden”. The artist, as soon as she arrived in Australia One year ago, relises the similarities between the plants in WA and in the Mediterranean area. She picks the plants she can recognise and imprint them in the clay, creating fossils.
