Judy Geerts

Raku & Ceramic Artist

Judy Geerts creates unique magical sculptures with clay.  Judy’s specialty is Copper-Flash Raku, an Americanized version of the traditional 16th Century Japanese firing process.  The swirling depth of the colors in her Raku is incredible.  Some of that Asian Raku flare and a lyrical motion seeps into her figurative ceramic pieces with amazing detail.   Geerts, now a longtime pro, began sculpting in 1993 at Ox-Bow, a school of art and artists’ residency here in Saugatuck, Michigan affiliated with the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

NOTE: You can view Judy Geerts’s art and the artworks of many more fine artists here at J. Petter Galleries.  See our Events page to discover when your favorite artists visit the gallery for an Artist’s Reception this season.
