ROSCHAR, Josef
By Lisa MONTESI and Danielle SCHRAGE, Page A18
Artist, husband, friend, father, grandfather. Born December 2, 1943, in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. Died September 4, 2005, at Stony Lake, Ontario, of pancreatic cancer, aged 61.
Many years ago, I asked Josef to make me a pair of candlesticks for my birthday. In a departure from his elegant ceramic vessels, he succumbed to my request and made a very funky set. On the underside he inscribed, "To Lisa, to remind her that Life is joy."
Josef embodied that joy. He was a shining light and those of us who had the good fortune to catch it sure knew what we had.
Josef ROSCHAR was a ceramic artist of international repute. He exhibited worldwide and his work is featured in numerous collections. He had two exhibits at the Gardiner Museum in Toronto, the city where he made his home for more than 20 years. His work in clay and metal was stunning; both elegant and innovative. He was fearless when it came to trying something new, his latest creation always a surprise.
Born in Amsterdam, Josef arrived in Toronto in the late 1970s. There, he met his wife, fellow artist Judith MYERS. It was the scheming of Judith's teenage daughter Danielle and her friend's mom, Debbie, that brought Josef and Judith together. It was on a beautiful July afternoon at Debbie's pool when Josef announced he was going for a swim. He threw off all his clothes and jumped into the pool. Judith followed suit. From that moment onward they were inseparable. Hearing that story, anyone knowing Josef couldn't help but grin, because "free spirit" was really the essence of his personality. He believed firmly in living your dreams and not settling for anything less.
Shortly after that meeting, Josef returned to Amsterdam, and Judith followed. They set up a small ceramics studio/gallery together.
The two became that rare couple who are able to work and live together in harmony. In the late 1980s, they returned to Toronto and opened a gallery on Avenue Road where they worked and exhibited. While Josef threw on the wheel, there were always visitors dropping by to sit and talk. It wasn't just the art they were drawn to, but the artist. Josef knew how to listen and he made you feel so at ease. He was straightforward, without being harsh. He could be playful, but mindful. More than one person has said that Josef helped change their lives, and they meant it. He was interested if you were.
In the late 1990s Judith and Joseph moved to the Kawartha Lakes area of Ontario, on scenic Stony Lake. There, they found an amazing community of Friends, many of whom were artists themselves.
The loyalty and respect that Josef had earned from the many Friends he cherished became ever so clear when he became ill. In August, an art auction was organized in his honour. His brother-in-law, Simon, the driving force of this event, set out to create a tribute and a means to support Josef. Donations of work were made by more than 40 artists. And on a glorious August afternoon, 400 people gathered to create a most memorable event. It spoke to the way Josef had touched people.
When the doctors urged him check into the hospital, Josef made it very clear that if he was going to die, it would be on his terms -- he would remain in his home overlooking the lake, surrounded by incredible beauty.
He spent his summer soaking up the glorious rays and driving his boat.
Known to zoom along the lake, he didn't allow his illness to stop him. However, when it prevented him from moving at his usual speed, he discovered that "although he had always loved to go fast, everything looked even more beautiful when he went slow." As the summer came to a close, Josef passed away at his home.
Lisa and Danielle are Josef's stepdaughters.
