LIFE IN THE STUDIO AND GARDEN with Frances Palmer
VIRTUAL ZOOM PROGRAM
Frances Palmer has been a potter and gardener for over 33 years and is known for her handmade functional ceramics. Her pieces have been carried by a variety of stores, including Barneys New York, Bergdorf Goodman, and the Philip Johnson Glass House. Her work has also been featured in The New York Times Magazine, Vogue, Martha Stewart Living, and House & Garden to name just a few. She lives and works in Weston, Connecticut.
In her lecture, Frances will discuss her ceramics, informed by her Art History training and what inspires her work in earthenware, terracotta and porcelain. Adjacent to the studio are two large cutting gardens, which provide a continual flow of flowers for Frances' photography. All three aspects of her practice combine to produce her art.
In October 2020, Frances' first book, Life in the Studio, was published by Artisan Books. It comprises essays describing her ceramic and garden processes as well as her philosophical ideas about making a creative life.
