Klaus Gutowski was born in Oberhausen, Germany in 1968. He migrated to Australia in 1998. He started his artistic career in Adelaide South Australia and returned to Germany in 2018. Klaus currently lives and works in Brühl near Cologne.
Since 2009 he has exhibited in several solo and group exhibitions, in Australia and internationally.
Klaus’s work is predominately sculptural ceramics, mainly hand built with wheel thrown and slip cast components. The surfaces of the figurative sculptures and vessel forms are at times textured, patterned, impressed, and carved. Sometimes the work is glazed with bright clear and pooling glazes, also with contrasting soft and delicate black or white terra sigillata surfaces.
