Kay Franz



Kay earned her BFA in Crafts from the University of Georgia in 1972. Her pottery is influenced by primitive pottery and her love of natural shapes and textures. She currently lives in Glen Allen, VA with her son, dogs, cats and a bunny called “Rabbit”. Over the years, Kay has shown in many local and regional galleries. She is affiliated with numerous regional and national arts organizations.


My work has been greatly influenced by my love of nature and of primitive pottery. I'm constantly surprised to discover that what I thought was original to my own work has been done over and over in many variations by known and unknown artists, past and present. I am deeply grateful to all those influences that have provided so much inspiration.
