Frances Marr creates works that are rooted in the environment. Drawing on memories of growing up on the Isle of Wight, she takes inspiration from the coast and its elements. Her vessels are smoke fired without glazing and so take on markings during the firing process., leaving carbonised shadows, emulating mists and shifting skies. With a background in graphic design and printing she took up ceramics in 2005.
Based in Wiltshire, she has shown at the The Hepworth, Wakefield, New Art Centre and the Salisbury Art Centre
