Versions of these wheel forms have previously been selected for the Portage Shows and they have been attracting lots of attention. Frank is presently The Wallace Arts Trust artist in residence at Auckland Studio Potters, a position he won at the annual Fire and Clay Exhibition at Pah Homestead.

"I like to work with white raku or recycled clay and my best tool is a wire cutter to make slabs of clay. I specialise in using cut and textured slabs of clay and fire in an electric kiln at 1200 deg Celsius. My work is about shapes and forms and I strive to keep it all as simple as I possibly can. Less is more.I have always enjoyed working with textured panels of clay and combining this with structural strength of curves bends circles. I am inspired by the architectural concepts of support, span and connection.” Frank is currently the vice president at the Auckland Studio Potters.
