Nancy Fuller is Taiwanese by birth but was raised in Scotland. She gained a BA (Hons) in Fine Art Printmaking in 1994 and went on to attain a MA in the History of Art and Archaeology of Asia. A language scholarship took her back to Taiwan in 2000 where she discovered her love of wood-fired ceramics. She studied pottery at various studios there before undertaking a year long training with anagama master Suzuki Shigeji in Shigaraki, Japan, supported by the Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation. On her return to Scotland in 2007, she designed and built her own anagama in rural Aberdeenshire. During her training she was also a resident artist at the Shigaraki Cultural Ceramic Park. Funding from the Scottish Arts Council enabled her to study with Karatsu master, Nakazato Takashi, at the Anderson Ranch Arts Center, US, and to participate in the International Workshop of Ceramic Art in Tokoname, Japan. She has exhibited both nationally and abroad.
