Meet the Maker: Froni Binns creates coloured porcelain jewellery and other wares from her home studio in Kyneton, Central Victoria. Having originally studied visual arts at the ANU School of Art and Design in the 1990s in the Graphic Investigation and Glass workshops, Froni returned to making in recent years as a therapy whilst caring full-time for her elderly parents. What began as explorations in colour eventually grew to working with porcelain and production jewellery within the tradition known as 'Nerikomi'.

Nerikomi allows Froni to explore pattern in porcelain with its properties of holding colour brilliantly. Since her return to making Froni has fallen in love with ceramics as a medium. Generally working without glazes, Froni sands and polishes the porcelain to show the simple beauty of the clay body. From being a therapeutic process, making has grown into her little business of making jewellery and small objects. For Froni, taking the handmade out of the gallery space as jewellery brings the objects alive.
