Oakwood Ceramics are pleased to introduce the work of Scottish potter Fergus Stewart.
Born in Aberdeen, Scotland, Fergus Stewart began working with clay while at high school in Dumfries & Galloway. Following studio based training as a domestic-wares potter Fergus emigrated to Australia, firstly working at Beaufort Pottery, Perth, then establishing a studio and building his first woodfire kiln during 1984 in Perth, Western Australia. He later relocated to Canberra, where he co-founded the Strathnairn Ceramics access workshop, and continued his studio practice there until 2001.
Fergus returned to Scotland in 2002, re-establishing his studio practice in the scenic location of Assynt in the North West Highlands.
Since 1985, Stewart has held and participated in exhibitions and led workshops in throwing, design for function and woodfire kiln design, construction and firing in Australia, Scotland, Denmark, Hungary and the USA. Part-time Ceramics teaching positions held include Canberra School of Art and LaTrobe University, Bendigo (visiting tutor/artist) in Australia, Glasgow School of Art (visiting tutor/artist) in Scotland and, since 2001, he has been a guest teacher for Bornholm School of Glass and Ceramics, Denmark School of Design.
His work is represented in many private and institutional collections, and in 2006 was represented in 'Salzbrand', the prestigious exhibition for saltglaze in Koblenz, Germany. Fergus's work has also been the subject of many articles, including Ceramics, Art and Perception, "A Taste of Shino" 1992, and in "Pottery in Australia" in 1995, 1996, 2002/4 and most recently in the Australian Journal of Ceramics summer 2005.
