Note

Text from object entry in A. Game (2016) ‘Contemporary British Crafts: The Goodison Gift to the Fitzwilliam Museum’. London: Philip Wilson Publishers: This work marked Fisher’s move from unglazed porcelain to a heavier stoneware body lightened by application of brilliantly coloured glazes. The same intense engagement with processes of forming is common both to this, and to the earlier porcelain form. Fisher is no longer active as a potter.
