The artist Jiří Duchek
Jiri Duchek comes from the former Czechoslovakia. He was born in Prague in 1970. After political liberalisation in 1989, he worked as a hired jiggerman in pottery workshops and studied ceramics at the Prague High School for Arts and Crafts, which he did not finish.
In 1995 he opened his own pottery workshop and until 1998 he taught pottery at the College of Education in a cloister in a small town near Prague (Sv.Jan pod Skalou – ‘St. John under the rock’).
In 1999 he moved with his family from the city to the countryside in a former farm where he pursued the production of ceramics fired in kilns using wood as fuel.
For his work he uses natural materials from the diverse Czech landscape that surrounds him.
He currently lives in the municipality of Mutejovice in the Czech Republic.
He himself says of his work:
“My work is a tribute to the Master who created man from the soil of the earth and endowed him with the awakening Spirit, to the one who says: Follow me, I am the Truth, the Path and the Life”.
