Crafting Friendly Forms with Potter Frances Savage

Manchester-based potter Frances Savage trained in Stoke-on-Trent, the heart of the potteries, and Tuscany. For the Spring Summer 2024 collection, Outdoor Pursuits, Frances has hand-thrown three pieces exclusively for TOAST. Her distinctive decorative style, created using a slip trailer, is simple and illustrative. Her rich palette of black, cream and honey compliments the warmth of the red terracotta clay. 

“I’ve always been drawn to these colours,” Frances says. “Honey glazes have historically been used in pottery because it’s a simple recipe made of local clay and a melting agent. I like to think that I’m nodding to the tradition when I slip my pots,” she says.
