‘Given the way the world has changed and slowed down in the last year, I wonder if there will be a growing audience for my work, which is very earthy and slowly made,’ says the Taiwanese-Scottish potter Nancy Fuller. For Collect art fair, Gallery Ten will be exhibiting her large kame pots, an elegant Japanese vessel form that, in times gone by, was used to store water (Fuller trained with master potters in Japan).
‘I made these in the peaceful early days of lockdown – it was an intense period of making,’ she recalls. ‘I called the piece I made Solace Kame. I’ve been working at my kitchen table here in Perthshire, then driving the unfired pieces to my kiln in the forests two hours away. I can only fire once a year because of the time it takes to build up enough pieces to fill the anagama kiln.’
