Frank Trotz

Frank Trotz has been working with clay since 1972, and is one of the founders of Clay Design Studio/Gallery. Frank's work is all hand built, either pinch or slab. What interests him most is the movement of clay, its malleability. The images in his work, the simple lines or the complex mixes, are the geography of Canada. They have come from his many travels across this country, looking down on the land from above. The land, the rock, the water and the highways have always been a part of Frank's work.
