Francoise continues to live in France and has built up a considerable reputation for her slip decorated earthenware in the UK. She has sold and demonstrated here for many years. Her work is divided between slabbed dishes and thrown pots. Some are intended for domestic use while others are large individual statement pieces. Francoise has stocked our gallery for the last fifteen years and examples of her work are available for the majority of each year. Please contact us for further details.
