Anja Palombo was trained in painting and art history. She taught art internationally for many years. When her students wanted wheel throwing classes, she started to work on her ceramic skills and has never looked back.
Anja’s work is influenced by the colors and styles of the places she has lived, from the Bauhaus tradition of her native Germany, to the Mediterranean light and forms of Turkey and Italy, to the patterns and forms of India. Now she mixes her glazes to embody the colors and nature found in beautiful south Florida.
Anja has exhibited paintings as well as pottery in Turkey and India, venues including the India International Center as well as the American Cultural Center in New Delhi.
In 2014 Anja moved to Sarasota where she lives with her husband and two kids and has been busy setting up Sarasota Green Pottery.
