WELCOME TO MY STUDIO

cerámica en Mallorca

I am pleased to welcome you to my site. You may or may not have visited my studio in beautiful Deia, Mallorca. If not, then you certainly are welcome to come by and have a look at me creating my ceramics in Mallorca as well as what I have on display there.

I am constantly inspired by the nature around me and my travels to create new work so if you are one of my collectors you will be sure to find something new to see. I will be updating my work from time to time on the site as well. Have a look around, check out my blog  and sign up for my newsletter if you’d like to be kept up to date.

Recently I have become an eco-artist as well. It is no use destroying that which we are enjoying.

My ceramic arts reflect the beautiful nature of the land and sea that I am privaleged to enjoy in the Tramuntana of Mallorca. The Serra de Tramuntana (including Deía area) became a world heritage site in 2011 and needs protection . As a swimmer and lover of the sea and marine life I joined the ASOCIACIÓN ONDINE, a local marine protection group working to keep the waters around Mallorca full of marine life and free of debris. Half of the profits from my fish tile trivits go to support their efforts.

Joanna Kuhne

I was born in Chicago Illinois, USA and attended the University of Illinois graduating with a degree in Fine Arts specializing in ceramic and glass sculpture. I am also trained in painting and enjoy painting on ceramics.

At the age of 15 years old I had the dream to live close to nature in the mountains on an island by the sea. In 1980 after graduation I flew to the VIrgin Islands and began working on sail boats in quest of my dream. I fell in love with a beautiful sailboat and crossed the Atlantic with it, sailing all over the Mediterranean visiting many islands along the way. At the end of a year on the boat we docked in the harbor of Palma de Mallorca. I found my way to the international artist village nestled in the mountains called Deia where I have lived ever since.

I met my former husband in Deia. We opened a cafe and had two children. I began to create ceramics for the cafe and people bought them off the walls, encouraging me to make more to replace them. After selling the café in 1997 I have been doing my ceramics full time. Most of the hotels, cafes and restaurants in Deia area own and display my ceramics which reflect much of the bountiful fruits and flora as well as the sea world around Mallorca..

I have integrated myself into the community of Mallorquins as well as the local foreign population of creatives including painters, musicians, film folks, photographers and sculptors who make Deia a unique place to live.

I am constantly inspired by the nature around me, my travels as well as (custom made) bespoke work. So if you are one of my collectors you will be sure to find something new to add to your collection.

HOT SPOT Success!!!

I attended the recent conference of MISSION BLUE where renown oceanographer Silvia Earle´s announcement that the waters surrounding the Balearic islands have become a Mission Blue HOPE SPOT !!!! The first in the Mediterranean. mission-blue.org/2015/11/dr-sylvia-earle-announces-new-hope-spot-in-mediterranean One of the questions put to Dr. Earle and the panel by some students was, ¨What can we do to support? ¨ Brad Robertson said, ¨Get in the sea and explore it for starters; dive, snorkel and swim ¨. As a lover of the sea I find that many people feel disconnected from the seas and oceans. It seems so vast and alien from life on land even if , actually, they make life on land possible by generating half or more of the oxygen we breath as well as the water that we need for life in the form of evaporation into clouds that rain on us. When we appreciate the watery world we live on and know how important it is to our lives then we will find ways to protect it. Simply by being conscious of not leaving our garbage on the beach which ends up in the sea is a great start. One can join the Association Ondine project called Dos Manos which is working to educate school children of the value and necessity of putting their trash in the garbage bins.. www.asociacionondine.org/dos-manos Personally I have created ceramic murals to colorfully illustrate just that. People of any nationality can understand the message. Three of my murals are around Cala de Deia and the next will be going to Puerto de Valldemossa sponsored by a former resident there named Ralph.
