Jill Fanshawe-Kato - Ceramics
18 October - 1 December


Jill fanshawe kato 4 x ceramicsEncouraged by family members, Jill Fanshawe Kato started drawing at an early age and at only ten, when her family moved Kingskerswell, Devon. Thus began her lifelong love of nature, seen today in her ceramics.

 

Travel to Spain, Asian countries, Brazil, to mountains and tropical islands such as the Maldives and Okinawa have all acted as sources of inspiration for Jill’s ceramics

She graduated in Painting from Chelsea School of Art, London, then gained an Art Teacher’s Certificate. After a period of teaching she had the opportunity to visit Tokyo in Japan where she joined the school of potter, Yosei Itaka, and began to study Japanese pottery. Since then, she has lived and worked in north London with her husband, Japanese photo-journalist Setsuo Kato. She has continued to exhibit in Japan with more than 43 exhibitions, mainly at Keio Department Store in Tokyo, but also in Okinawa. She has exhibited widely internationally and across the UK.

Jill was a lecturer on the Postgraduate Ceramics Diploma course at Goldsmiths College, London, for 17 years and tutor at Lambeth Institute and Kingsway College. She lectures and writes widely on Japanese ceramics. She has worked at the Gifu, Japan studio of potter Ryoji Koie on several occasions and has written about Koie and related subjects for magazines such as Crafts and Ceramic Review. Jill is currently establishing a studio near Moretonhampstead in Devon.

More about Jill ... Prices start at: cups £38, plates £59.
