Joanna’s passion for ceramics started in Poland where she spend her childhood surrounded by paintings, oil paints and canvases as she is a fourth generation of artists in her family.
At the age of 19 she moved to the UK to further her creative studies and gained her BA degree in 3D Design Ceramics at Staffordshire University in Stoke-on-Trent.
Since graduating in 2012 she works as a freelance ceramicist undertaking small and large scale commissions, assisting established artists and facilitating clay workshops. She is also a part time ACL (Adult and Community Learning), Lecturer at South Staffordshire College in Lichfield and an Associate Artist at British Ceramics Biennial and Birmingham Education Partnership.
Due to her past experience she has a strong passion for work that connects to the community and art that represents stories and emotions.
She believes that ceramic art should be more than just too look at. People can express their emotions in clay, are able to connect with it and create something that is their own. Also for the audience to see the story behind the process and link it with their own experiences.
Joanna has always been fascinated by natures movement and dynamics and how this is portrayed in sculpture and how she can create it within her own work.
