In ceramics, the multidisciplinary artist creates decorative and functional objects and sculptures of small scale. Francine Potvin explores the ritual object, profane or sacred, individual or collective. She mainly uses handbuilding techniques and explores the notion of the vessel as a receptacle: the vase; the urn; and the lachrymatory. She also creates forms inspired by pebbles, oblong or ovoid shapes that she engraves with archetypal symbols. To create her most recent sculptures, she utilizes a technique of soaking plant material in paper-clay which she amalgamates into shaped forms. The resulting sculptures are reminiscent of corals.

In all cases, the symbolic dimension of these receptacles and the manifestations of life that are evoked challenge the artist and nourish her practice.
