Frances Doherty

Doherty turned to sculpture after a ten year stint owning a restaurant in Brighton, after she became hooked on ceramics at an evening class. She spent five years at college, studying photography and plastics as well as ceramics, and on graduating she took out a lease on workshop premises in Hove. In 2004 she won an award for Best Newcomer at the British Craft Trade Fair, and has written features for their magazine “The Craftsman’. She took a post grad in teaching and learning, and has worked part-time as a tutor at Northbrook College, Brighton University and HMP Ford. Her inspiration comes from flowers and plants that we see all around, in gardens, fields, even cracks in the pavement, particularly the secret worlds inside these flowers, in the patterns and textures hidden away that give a continuing sense of promise and renewal. She likes to play with scale and will often imagine the size that a plant must appear to an insect...what is it about the flower that attracts or repels? The work is often scaled up so that we can have an 'insects eye view' of it.
