Ruty Levy

For as long as I can remember, creativity has been a very important part of my identity. I was drawn to clay; its basic elemental nature, tactile qualities and without boundaries possibilities. And I’ve loved every stage of my progression through the years.

My work starts by having an idea - and then there is always a moment the clay will react to my hands, and not necessarily to my mind, as if I am just the executor. The clay will hint and suggest a direction - an expression or movement- and I concede to the natural process, flowing with it until completion.

Declaring my passion for ceramics was a conscious decision. I felt, ‘this is who I am, this is what I was meant to do, now’.

Open for commissions

Karin Mac

German-born ceramic artist Karin Mac made the first of many visits to India with her husband Jatindar Singh Mac in the late

1960s, and has made art inspired by India ever since. In 1980, she immigrated to the United States with her husband

and their three sons. While studying art in Southern California, Karin fell in love with pottery.

The sensuousness of clay and the magic of fire, with its mysterious transformations of the glazes, grip her imagination. Working both with and without a potter’s wheel, Karin often infuses her work with her decades-long relationship with Sikhism. From plates and mugs to stunning vases, platters, Om, Khanda, and Ik Onkar motifs, each of Karin’s pieces elicits a specific mood, articulating both the world view and the intimate observations of the artist. She works out of her home studio in Thousand Oaks, California.
