Bell Fraser – Cape Breton Centre for Craft

Bell Fraser

Bell was born and raised in Margaree Valley, Cape Breton and has been working with clay since 1986. After studying painting and ceramics at the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design in Halifax, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1990, Bell came back home to continue working. Transforming a simple thrown form into an elaborate container, with crabs, lobsters or mussels added to it, is both a challenge and a reward. Bell wants to make new things that feel good to hold.
