Klaus Gutowski was born in Oberhausen, Germany in 1968. He migrated to Australia in 1998. Klaus is currently working from his studio in Adelaide, South Australia, and lectures at Adelaide College for the Arts and Flinders University.
Since 2009 he has exhibited in several solo and group exhibitions, locally and international.
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.
