Froni makes the most beautifully tactile patterned porcelain jewellery in her studio in Central Victoria. To understand her work, run your fingers across the polished surface. Turn it over and you can see the pattern and colour are through the body of clay, not mere surface decoration. No glazes, everything hand polished and handmade.
Having originally studied visual arts 25 years ago in Canberra, Froni returned to making in recent years as a therapy whilst caring for her elderly parents. What began as explorations in colour eventually grew to working with porcelain objects within the tradition known as ‘Nerikomi’.
