About Jutta Golas

Jutta was born in Germany, discovered clay during her 5-year stay in Kyoto, Japan and has lived in Littleton, Colorado for almost twenty years.

Her sensuous wall reliefs emerge above all from an intense identification with the outdoors and a fascination with all of nature’s shapes and textures. She works with a complex palette: underglazes, glazes and metallic lustres. Her airbrushing technique and a multi firing process yield rich and subtle color patterns. Her work has been exhibited nationally and is being collected by in individuals and corporations in the United States, Europe and Japan.
