‘Hannah is a Sheffield based ceramicist, who’s work is predominantly thrown and hand built using terracotta. She uses coloured slips to create her painterly finishes each piece is used as its own canvas so no two pots are ever quite the same. ‘

‘Frankly Frances designs and makes unique knitted, sewn and crocheted accessories or you and your home. All handmade by Frankly Frances from luxury textiles, yarns & leathers, often upcycled, sometimes vintage.
l am increasingly using upcycled and recycled textiles. I use upcycled wool knitwear to make hats and cushions. I make scrubbies and face cloths from 100% cotton yarn, machine washable, reusable – in direct response to the pollution of the seas and land from wet wipes and plastics. I hand knit mitts, hats, headwarmers, scarves, snoods from luxury yarns. Shoulder bags are made from wool tweeds and upcycled leather offcuts. Wool tweed cushions have vintage velvet or felted wool applique hearts.’

‘I have been involved in ceramics for seventeen years now and I am still learning different
techniques and ways of creating pieces using glazes, slips, clays, underglazes and oxides.
My preferred method of creating has always been the pottery wheel and have worked toward
a production pottery style of throwing and strive to make my work usable, beautiful and affordable.

As well as teaching throwing at the Art House I have a small studio I built three years ago. I retired from the N.H.S. two years ago where I worked in an adult acute mental health hospital facilitating pottery sessions for patients as a therapeutic activity, patients found this helpful and a considerable number of people continued working with clay as an art form and as a therapeutic activity on leaving hospital. My work can be viewed at the Art House and on my Instagram site.
