Joka van Wijk
Joka van Wijk started her ceramics training at Morley College in London and currently shares a studio in Iliffe yard, a wonderful creative community at The Elephant and Castle. She has exhibited work at Morley Gallery, Southwark Cathedral and Tate Modern (part of ‘The Inside Job’). Last year her work was included at New Designers in Islington, where she won the Potclays Graduate award.
Joka’s work is mainly functional, wheel thrown stoneware. Her inspiration comes from prints and textile design and a lot of her work uses pattern and colour. Joka’s aim is to make things that are beautiful and practical to use in everyday life.
