Want free master-classes from big-hearted heroes?
I am Dale Frances and am a multi passionate and an artist. I specialise in slip cast, wheel thrown and hand built ceramics and run a business making and selling my yummy, colourful vessels. I also print and paint! And sing!
After spending years not following my passion, but always making and creating, I finally have become a full time creative! I have almost completed my BA (art), and I run a business designing and making useable objects of beauty, predominantly from porcelain. My business is called MadHarriet which include the second chance for disposable vessels range of Harry and Harriet. I am passionate about the environment and minimising my impact, and so I fire using solar powered electric kilns (5 of the suckers line my driveway), and I reuse used disposable containers and packaging to make useable shapes to cast. I love colour and texture and am always messing around finding different ways to maniputalte them. I’ve just finished designing a range of homewares for a store specialising in exquisite linens from Italy, loving the challenging (and, yes, frustrating) process of colour development. It’s is really important to me to share my knowlege with others, and so I also teach non vocational classes. What fun! They always teach me something, too. So these days you will nearly always find me in my studio at my home in Fremantle, Western Australia. It might be a bit messy, but I welcome visitors.
