Ruth is a sculptor based in Cumbria.
“I first discovered clay on foundation course at Portsmouth College of Art and Design in the late 70’s. After this, I was lucky enough to get a place on a ceramics degree course at Bath Academy of Art. My ceramic work has been based around the human figure. I now make detailed, small scale pieces and more symbolic, sculptural work. I try to capture expressions and character and, hopefully, produce precious objects that people will cherish. My latest project is a range of rock climbers, a popular activity here in the English Lake District.”
