Faith Fraser | | At Ashlar Studio

I have been interested in the use of life size puppets and masks in my work in theatre productions which has led to inspirational studies of the different characters in the Commedia del’Arte and Japanese theatre and more recently in the old American carousels and circus clowns.

For the same reason, I am influenced also by artists such as Hogarth and Erson and many cartoonists, all of which give me inspiration for my work creating original ceramic sculptures around traditional rhymes, folklore, myths and masks.
