Fran is a functional potter who lives and works in Cambridge, MD, and she is Main Street Gallery’s featured artist for September and October.

She has named her exhibit,“Inspirations” because she says her work is inspired by her extensive travel and the cultures and natural beauty she encounters while seeing the world. “I love to travel and experience different cultures and do quite a lot of it! I particularly love experiencing the natural world in all its glory” says the artist, who also loves to photograph the many sights she sees. 

Since her show coincides with the Smithsonian Institution’s traveling exhibit, “Water/Ways” which will come to Cambridge this fall, Fran emphasizes that making wheel formed pottery is intimately bound to and dependent on water.  As anyone who has ever watched a potter at work knows, water is essential to making clay vessels.

Meet her on Saturday, October 12 at 5pm during Cambridge’s Second Saturday Art Walk. Main Street Gallery is Cambridge’s only artist-owned and run cooperative. Members are a harmonious group of painters, photographers, ceramists, jewelry, and furniture artists who work together to show their art in Cambridge, MD’s downtown Arts and Entertainment District.
