Douglas Fitch and Hannah McAndrew are internationally renowned potters who live and work in Dumfries and Galloway, and Cohesion marks their first solo exhibition with The Scottish Gallery. Both potters draw inspiration from pots of the past, taking influences from the ancient British folk heritage of medieval and country pottery, and seventeenth century Staffordshire slipware. Cohesion brings both artist’s work to the fore.
It’s a strange thing, to be excited by something as simple as a brown clay jug and I can’t explain it, but it seems that it happens to some people; it just gets under your skin. Our life is our work, and our work is our life – we live, and we breathe pottery. Fitch & McAndrew
