Jitka Zgola – Cape Breton Centre for Craft & Design

Jitka Zgola

Jitka spent many years as an occupational therapist consulting about care for persons with Alzheimer’s and is still invited to speak and present workshops throughout North America. Pottery is now a passion that she indulges, constantly experimenting and exploring new techniques to produce one-of-a-kind functional pieces – art that can be used every day. Most production takes place in the serene wintry months in her studio in Wreck Cove. True to its functional nature, Jitka’s stoneware is food, oven and microwave safe.
