How beautiful are the pieces below…? By Edinburgh-based sculpturist Frances Priest. I think I have fallen in love! This work is so gorgeous..I want to pick them up and turn them over in my hands..over and over..(I wouldn’t let anyone else do this of course..should I own one!!!! ha!..no way Jose!)

Frances exhibits her work internationally and has won many awards – surprise surprise!!! Her most recent awards are from The Scottish Arts Council for Professional development and The Benno Shotts Award for Promising Young Scottish Sculptor at The Royal Scottish Academy. She was also selected to represent Britain with five other ceramicists at the European Ceramic Context 2006 and at Talente in 2001. So definitely one to watch!!!
