Bettles Gallery - 2006 - Exhibition
Ruthanne's soda glazed stoneware is complimented by Julie Herring's seascape paintings in the new Bettles Gallery in Ringwood. A major inspiration for Ruthanne's contorted pots is the creative forces of nature that she remembers from her childhood in California. Unlike most potters Ruthanne's pots are finished on the wheel rather than being assembled when hardened off. Fifty three pots were exhibited, mostly domestic ware - bottles, platters, jugs, teapots, dishes and lidded jars with tea ceremony yunomis and chawans.
