My Mentor - Jutka Fischer


Jutka Fischer Sanja Bresslauer and Jutka Fischer

Born close to Mohács in southern Hungary, Fischer arrived in Budapest aged two with her parents and brother, but had to leave suddenly after the uprising in 1956. The family headed for America, settling in California. Fischer, however, trained at London's Central School of Art and Design and remained in England after graduating in 1975.

Fischer still keeps her old studio at the small port of Newhaven in East Sussex, but she received a grant from South East Arts and returned to her homeland to the inspiring setting of Zugliget.

Fischer taught pottery work in England and aside from working on creations for her own future UK exhibition, a prerequisite of the grant, she decided she would like to share her love of ceramics with others.
