Collection: Jil Franke

Minneapolis, MN

Jil Franke was introduced to ceramics when teaching art in Sydney, Australia. She handbuilds each geometrically designed functional piece of work using a darting technique on slabs. Surface decoration is created using wax resist and slips and finally they are fired in a wood kiln with a light salting. Her work has been exhibited both internationally and nationally, including Yingge Ceramics Museum, Taipei and Jingdezhen International Ceramic Art Center, China. Private collections with her work include The American Museum of Ceramic Art in Pomona, California and the Minneapolis Institute of Art.
