DANIEL MATERNA

Daniel Materna was born in Prague, Czech Republic. He graduated from the Ceramics College of Arts in Bechyne in 1965, and worked in several ceramics studios throughout Europe.

In 1969, Materna immigrated to Vancouver, British Columbia, where he set up his own studio in 1969. Materna has participated in a number of exhibitions and his work is found in several collections in Canada. He and his wife, Zuzy Vacek, moved their studio to Granville Island, Vancouver, in the mi-1980‘s, where they produce functional ware, lamps and sculptures. Materna creates the wood fired pieces, while his wife paints folk art style finishes on many of the works. Materna lives in Vancouver, British Columbia.
