"I am exclusively interested in creating wood-fired pottery. My fascination with the clay itself is the starting point for my work and I'm intrigued by how clay is transformed by the fire in endless ways."

Nancy Fuller is Taiwanese by birth and she was raised in Scotland. After training as a printmaker, she discovered wood-fired ceramics when she returned to Taiwan in 2000 to study Chinese Mandarin. She was instantly drawn to the elemental nature and beauty of the wood-firing process and sensed it would sustain her interest for years to come. Her dream to study with a master potter in the mountains of Japan finally came true for her when she was introduced to anagama master Suzuki Shigeji during a month-long residency at the Shigaraki Ceramic Cultural Park in Japan. She embarked on a year-long training with him, in the Shigaraki tradition. During her time there, she gained a very different understanding of ceramics, an understanding so dependent on time and place that it had to be completely adapted when she moved back to Aberdeenshire.
