Members of the Guild, interested artists, and public are invited to join us for a very special free 2-hour demonstration and talk by internationally known ceramic artist Ruthanne Tudball.

Tudball has developed a technique in which, as an example, a tea pot is thrown, manipulated, altered and assembled while on the wheel. For that teapot she would throw the pot, spout, lid, pull the handle, trim the bottom and assemble on the wheel in one sitting. Since the way she work calls for pots to be completed as they are made, she tends to make pots in small series or families. She was born and brought up in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains in California, a short ride from the sea to the west and the Mojave Desert in the east. The primal connections to such physical elements as the mountains, sea and desert have formed and been essential to the inspiration for her making pots. In1989 she graduated with a Commendation and two years worth of research into soda glazing from Goldsmith’s. This led to writing a book Soda Glazing published by A&C Black in 1995. She now lives in England. https://www.ruthannetudball.com/

Ruthanne is an American artist living in England and will present a hands on workshop of her techniques for throwing.
