Luke Fuller comments that, ‘Clay is part of the geological platform on which we stand. It is a material that not only connects us to our most primitive beginnings but one that also offers a versatility and possibility to produce contemporary objects of craft and design as valid as any in the modern era. Clay is one of the original products of recycling, from mountain top to river bed, this natural material offers me the chance to engage with the elemental earth and, through practice, build upon the traditions and lineage of human making.’
The artist graduated in 2018 with a BA in 3D Design and Craft from the University of Brighton where he specialised in Ceramics. He is currently studying at the Royal College of Art on the MA Ceramics and Glass. In 2018, Fuller received a number of prestigious awards and bursaries including the Nagoya University of Art, Japan, Grand Prize; the Business Design Centre Designer of the Year Award; The Anna Maria Desogus Memorial Graduate Award; a Franz Rising Star Scholarship; a Charlotte Fraser Scholarship; and The Richard Seager Bursary Award. He was also a Craeftiga Finalist in Association with Hole & Corner.
