Jolanta Herma Pasińska About me


About me

Born in 1975 in Bielsko Biała. Studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Wroclaw at the Faculty of Ceramics and Unique Glass. Graduated from PhD studies at the Art Institute of the University of Silesia.

She is a lecturer at the Art Institute of the University of Silesia in Katowice / Poland.

Her sculptures are part of collections of Historical Museum in Bielsko-Biała, Silesian Museum in Katowice, Museum da Cidade de Aveiro in Portugal, Museo della Ceramica di Grottaglie in Italy, Ruiz de Luna Ceramics Museum in Talavera de la Reina, Spain and in private collections in Europe, Australia and the United States.

Her ceramic works are the result of constantly looking for a variety of structures, textures and openwork. Perforating the ceramic surface, she checks the strength of the material. Her domain is large illuminated ceramic sculptures.
