Frampton enjoyed a successful career as a sculptor and craftsman. After training at the Royal Academy schools and in Paris, he created many statues and public monuments including Peter Pan (1912) in Kensington Gardens. Closely associated with the Arts and Crafts movement, Frampton practised enamelling, goldsmith's work and woodcarving. Many of his sculptures are characterised by the combination of different materials, such as bronze and marble. Painted by his son. At the time, Frampton was working on the statue Edith Cavell (1920), which stands in front of the National Portrait Gallery.
