Jutta discovered clay during a 5-year stay in Kyoto, Japan. After many years as a functional potter she decided to move to a new neighborhood where, unfortunately, the outdoor gas kiln was no longer welcome. So she experimented with with abstract, free-form wall sculptures that could be fired at low temperatures in an electric kiln. She enjoyed very much the enormous possibilities of brilliant colors that were not possible at high temperatures.
Working in modules allowed her to produce large scale sculptures for installations in commercial spaces, e.g. Hotels, banks, hospitals but also for site specific residential areas.
About 10 years ago she teamed up with a metal artist. Together we have designed many wall arrangements and free-standing sculptures consisting of metal branches and ceramic “petals” or spheres.
