Frances’s forms are inspired by the recurring patterns in nature. Looked at closely, the structure of a plant is pure mathematics, nothing is random, it is perfect symmetry. In nature, plants grow to the scale necessary to attract insects for pollination… She likes to play with this scale to give both an ‘insect’s eye view’ and to bring up to human scale the amazing intricacies of the plants around us. Her exterior sculptures are designed to interact with the garden. Some will move with the wind, others will collect water, then insects and become an active part of the life around them.
