Inspiration for the Weekend: Amy Franke Smith
Written by Fiona Knight

Amy Franke Smith,terracotta artist, architecture ceramics and conservation expert is exhibiting work this weekend as part of a new exhibition entitled Courses Re-visited in the Jerwood Gridshell building at the Weald and Downland Museum.   

Back in 2014 as part of Heritage Open Day for 318 Ceramics she gave a great talk, good to see what you have been doing recently Amy!

“This new work is using relief designs that come from water forms and the ebbs and flows of the river and the nearby sea. I've been working on making designs that can repeat, but also look fresh and flowing and with an energy, which is harder than it sounds if each design has to finish where it starts! The idea is they will connect up to make a large work in sequence.”   


She is also planning open studios for the Adur Festival in June, West Street Loft Studios – Venue 14 – Shoreham-by-Sea

where you can see more of her work and projects in progress.
