Frances Palmer ~ Life In The Studio
Life In The Studio - Inspiration And Lessons On Creativity.
"Frances Palmer is as generous as she is talented, an incredible role model for me and so many other creative people. I've been waiting for this book ever since I discovered Frances's work, and it has exceeded all my expectations. The depth of the subject matter, the heartfelt essays, the beautiful photography, and the wisdom that Frances shares are inspirational and life-changing." Erin Benzakein, author of Floret Farm's Cut Flower Garden & A Year In Flowers.
What makes a creative life? For an artist like Frances Palmer, it's knitting all of one's passions - all of one's creativity - into the whole of life. And what inspiration it is.
A renowned potter, an entrepreneur, a gardener, a photographer, a cook, a beekeeper, Frances has, over the course of three decades, caught the attention not only of the countless people who collect and use her ceramics but also of designers and design lovers, writers and fellow artists who marvel at her example. Now, in her first book, she finally tells her story, in her own words and images, distilling from her experiences lessons that will inspire a new generation of makers and entrepreneurs.
Life In The Studio is as beautiful and unexpected as Frances's pottery, as breathtakingly colourful as her celebrated dahlias, as intimate as the dinners she hosts in her studio for friends and family.
There are insights into making pots, strategies for how to turn a passion into a business, step-by-step instructions for growing dahlias, building opulent arrangements, even some of her most tried and true recipes.
The result is a portrait of a unique artist and a singularly generous manual on how to live a creative life.
