Great post by @nationalportraitgallery of the bust Frances sculpted of Sir Ben Helfgott:

This bronze bust of Sir Ben Helfgott, Olympic weightlifter and Holocaust survivor, was commissioned to celebrate Helfgott’s knighthood in 2018, received for his services to Holocaust remembrance and education.

Born to Jewish parents in Nazi-occupied Poland, Helfgott survived ghettos, slave labour and concentration camps, where his mother and younger sister were both killed. He arrived in Britain in 1945, aged 15, as part of a group of young Jewish refugees taken to the Lake District - they became known as The Windermere Children.

📍 Find this portrait on display in Room 28, Floor 2

Back in 1990 Frances sculpted the Reverend Adrian Victor Benjamin in front of an audience. She managed to finish the bust in just 2 hours, which was the start of the mesmerising two-hour live sculpts that she does.

The Polished Steel Angels that Frances made in the early 2000s wouldn’t quite fit on top of a Christmas Tree but look beautiful reflecting the nature that surrounds them.

Merry Christmas Eve!

There are four of these: Miracle Angel, Power Angel, Guardian Angel and Angel of Inspiration.

Last night over 900 Barnardo’s Young Supporters gathered at the Royal Albert Hall for an evening of music and song supported by the world-famous Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra.

The event was held to raise vital funds for @barnardos_uk’s Christmas poverty campaign, supporting children, young people and their families most in need at a time when the cost-of-living crisis hits hardest.

Sending our support to @barnardos_uk and everyone involved.

When Frances was 14 she drew this picture which felt so much like doing a sculpture, and gave her such a strong urge to sculpt, that she persuaded her mother to buy some clay. Frances then sculpted her father, and her career as a sculptor was born.

Do you know about the Yellow Drawing Room at Buckingham Palace? It is often used by artists when they do portraits of the Royal family. It is where Frances sculpted the Queen, and Prince Philip!

On Monday UK Youth welcomed Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal to Avon Tyrrell, the outdoor centre in the New Forest to launch an appeal to restore and expand the site.

The visit came after the installation of a one-of-a-kind sculpture of HRH The Princess Royal by Frances who is of course known for her sculptures of the Royal Family.

Commissioned in celebration of the Princess Royal’s 70th birthday in 2020, the sculpture also appeared in an ITV documentary ‘Anne: The Princess Royal at 70’.

This week we’re remembering Queen Elizabeth II and this beautiful bust that earned Frances a Royalty Sculptor status.

In 2007 Frances was granted three sittings with HM the Queen at Buckingham Palace. It was unveiled at Baden Powell House for the Scout Association.

‘Creation of our New World’

This is a sculpture by Frances that was inspired by The Creation of Adam - a fresco painting by Michelangelo that forms part of the Sistine Chapel’s ceiling, painted c. 1508 - 1512.

INTRODUCING NEW WORK!

Here’s your first peek at Frances’ life-sized throne sculpture that encapsulates centuries of tradition, power, and authority while embracing a contemporary spirit.

Crafted meticulously from gleaming stainless steel and embellished with exquisite bejewelled stones, this throne embodies the essence of regality and grandeur.

Doesn’t it look beautiful?

THRONE CHAIRS!

In addition to bronze busts, Frances has a collection of life-sized throne sculptures made out of stainless steel.

The throne is an ancient symbol in the Royal story - a literal seat of divine and secular rule and a defining sign of the claim to power and authority.

Frances has made 4 separate throne chairs: a new Coronation Chair (more about that soon…), a large double Crown Chair, and the King & Queen Throne Chairs.

Very exciting to see the first images of the finished bust of Lord David Blunkett sculpted by Frances in London at the end of last year.

This is a tactile piece of art sculpted for the charity Vision Foundation, of which Frances is a vice president.

@vision_fdn have recently merged with @fightforsightuk. The merger will help both charities tackle sight loss from both a clinical and social perspective. They’ll be combining teams, announcing a new name and fine-tuning their unified mission and strategy – as well as continuing with the important work they’re already committed to – so you can expect big things in the coming months, including more info on what’s happening with this very sculpture…

This weekend Frances threw a wonderful birthday to celebrate her husband, the one and only, Jack Petchey.

The @jackpetcheyfoundation was set up by Sir Jack to inspire and motivate young people to believe in themselves. In 2016 he received his knighthood in recognition of his many years of charitable work.

“If you think you can, you can”

Happy Birthday Sir Jack! 🤍

Send your wishes for his birthday tomorrow (19th July) to @jackpetcheyfoundation!
