Nature’s Garden

Jill Fanshawe Kato

29 Nov 2014 - 24 Dec 2014

“In recent years my work as a potter and my travels have taken me to many fascinating places. From Devon to Edinburgh, New Zealand to Japan, Costa Rica to Egypt, a little of each place returns to my studio with me. I trained as a potter in Japan, experiencing digging clay in the mountains and wood firing, absorbing the connection with nature through fire and earth. Having had 43 exhibitions there I have been able to maintain that connection.

“I grew up in rural Devon surrounded by wildlife and bird-watching was a favourite pursuit, birds have been a part of my artistic vocabulary from early days. The natural world is my ongoing inspiration as are the artefacts of other cultures, both ancient and contemporary. Though mainly based in London, I am currently establishing a studio in Devon and wait to see where that environment will lead my ceramics to.”

Public collections include: Aberystwyth Arts Centre, Wales; World Ceramic Exposition Foundation, Korea; Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation, London; Yokohama National University, Japan.
