Jitka Palmer
Surface Decoration
Master Class

Jitka Palmer’s work is figurative, narrative and expressive, inspired by stories and themes. She loves watching people, their body language and facial expressions and is always on the lookout for special moments and situations accompanying every human activity. Sketchbooks, books and CDs are used as a valuable collection of raw material with drawing and painting on clay surfaces being a pivot of her work. She particularly likes capturing the movement and energy of people in various activities like work, sport and music and loves the challenge of quick intuitive drawing without unnecessary detail.

Jitka draws upon personal experiences, past and present, reflecting the spontaneity of ordinary human life, making clay vessels and sculptures, painted with slips, oxides and stains. As a professional ceramicist she has exhibited in Britain, Europe and the USA. Her work is in private and public collections including Musee National de Ceramique, Paris and she particularly enjoys working to commission.
