JUDITH BURKE (1932 - )

Judith Burke was born in Washington, DC in 1932 and moved to San Francisco with her family at the age of fifteen. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Art History in 1953 and her Master of Arts in Painting in 1955 from the University of California, Berkeley. Burke discovered ceramics when she took an evening pottery class after her university studies and continued on to enrol in several additional courses and workshops. She and her husband moved to Canada in 1970, where she began her career as a ceramic artist in the mid-1970s. Burke’s work is primarily functional stoneware, however, she often works in three dimensions and uses colour to fulfill her needs as an artist.

Burke has been exhibiting both nationally and internationally since 1980 and her works are found in private and public collections including the Museum of Anthropology, University of British Columbia; the Shepparton Art Gallery, Australia; and the World Ceramic Exposition Foundation, Korea. Burke lives in Maple Ridge, British Columbia.
