Artist's Profile
Renate Galetzka, Ceramic Artist and Potter

I love the process of throwing on the potters wheel. Presently I work a lot in bright colours. Jester Series is inspired by the amazing world of the circus and the magical books of Dr Suess.

I use high temperature, white earthenware clay. I mix my own Engobes which I apply by brushing, trailing and dabbing. Work is glazed with transparent glaze and fired in an electric kiln to 1200 C. All of my work is hand thrown and individually decorated. Each piece is unique in its decoration and design.

All my work is suitable for dishwasher or microwave oven.

I hold a trade certificate in Pottery from 'Schule für Gestaltung', Zurich, Switzerland. I am always happy to connect with customers, and enjoy making individual work to order. I can be contacted by email: rgaletzka@gmail.com

This site started out as an effort to provide ceramic artists in Christchurch, New Zealand with an outlet for their work after the devastating earthquake that essentially destroyed the business district, and much of urban Christchurch in 2010. After suffering the loss of their physical outlets in the earthquakes some of these studio artists formed the Cracked Pots Society and launched this website which gives the public a chance to again see and buy their work.

Since that time ceramic artists have found new ways to display and sell their work. In 2015 NZ Potters took over the site and offerred it as a free service to members in New Zealand.

ceramicsonline.co.nz has now been handed over to Lawrence Ewing who hopes to further develop the site and offer it to all potters and ceramic artists in New Zealand.
