Ruthanne will give a day of demonstrations and talks giving an insight into her inspiration, her path with clay and the making processes she uses to create her beautiful and highly recognisable work.
All of Ruthanne's work is thrown, altered and assembled while freshly thrown own the wheel. Her work is made on a momentum wheel and since all the pots are completed as they are made she tends to work in small batches that she fires in a gas soda kiln.
'The world of ceramics is wide and varied, and it is important to make it accessible and understandable to a wide public.'
Towards this end, Ruthanne plays an active part as a Fellow of the Craft Poptters Association of Great Britain. She is also a member of Contemporary Applied Arts and is an elected member of the International Academy of Ceramics.
