THE STORY | GOLD MEADOW 


London-based ceramist Francesca Kaye uses stoneware in an almost sculptural way, creating hand made moulds in various shapes and sizes which she presses the clay into.


In this collection of unique, handmade plates and platters, that vary from the very large to smaller pieces, the artist has achieved an irresistible tactile quality, almost ancient in feel. Indentations and an unevenness give the work a lively energy that can only come from the hand of the maker.

Sprouting from the base of these milk-white glazed plates and platters are hand painted flowers in gold (and occasionally pewter) lustre. Painted with a bold energetic hand, the flowers have a crisp quality that reflect the light beautifully, inspired by meadows at dusk when the golden glow radiates from the fields.

Francesca began her career in weaving and textiles, but promptly changed discipline after studying ceramics at Goldsmith’s College in the 1990’s. In recent years Francesca has worked from her purpose-built studio in the bottom of her garden.


Prolific and intuitive, she creates work in her bold yet delicate style, which is completely unique, referencing an array of influences. Asked for just a few of them, Francesca lists “the ceramic department of the Victoria & Albert Museum, Hungarian folk art, children’s stickers and Matisse!”
