Joanna Dawidowska

Joanna’s passion for ceramics started in Poland when she spent 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 has worked 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 teaching Pottery and Sculpture. Joanna was one of the Artists-in-Training with BCB in 2018 and since completing the programme she was a lead artist during the BCB ReClaim workshops at MindZone.  

Due to her past experience she has a strong passion for work that connects to the community and art that represents stories and emotions.
