Jasna Sokolovic

Jasna is a good friend of the SFM show and has shown with us a number of times over the years. She is an artist with a broad background which provides her with an ever-expanding palette of creative tools to work with. Her ceramic works, whether they are functional or non-functional, tell a story like a letter to a friend does. They are intimate and personal and when you are observing them you may feel like you are the only person in the room with them.

With a foundation in architecture, Jasna moved to Canada from Yugoslavia in 1994, where she earned her BFA Degree from Emily Carr Institute of Art & Design in 2000.

Jasna has participated in gallery shows throughout Canada and United States. Her work was recently selected for the 5th World Ceramic Biennale in Korea. Also in 2009, she received the Winfred Shantz award for ceramics. She has participated in artist residencies in Denmark, the Banff Centre, and most recently in Mexico.

Jasna’s work is featured in the Lark Books Transfer Imagery on Clay, 500 Tiles, Surface Design for Ceramics, and 500 Vases.

She works in a variety of artistic fields, using clay as a basis to explore gallery installations, fashion and interior design.
