Who is Jude Jeha?
Your experienced teacher, Jude, has been working with pottery since the 80's as well as working in a range of other creative avenues. Jude has had her pottery pieces shown in numerous exhibitions, has had pieces purchased by Government bodies and has taught extensively across Queensland, holding the role of President at some Pottery Clubs, including Capricornia.
Born to renowned artist (Peggy Westmoreland) who focused on fine art and sculpture, Jude is passionate about pottery, her studio is filled with her own pieces as she perfects her craft daily. One of Jude's most notable experiences is having to build a kiln around the body of a large piece to enable the firing to stoneware... she believes that nothing is impossible and we are only limited by our imaginations as to what we can create!
Aside from pottery, Jude enjoys working with copper electroforming and glass slumping. Jude is passionate about recycling and in her own work, uses recycled glass bottles to create her unique glazing effects.
