Ruth Hartley Ceramic Artist
Inspired by nature, Ruth strives to emulate its forms, textures and colours in her functional stoneware and one of a kind decorative pieces. She uses wheel throwing, hand building and sculpting or a combination of these techniques to develop her own personal style as a ceramic artist. Her passion for pottery grows from the challenge of creating a thing of beauty from a lump of clay.
Ruth exhibits her work at the Ingersoll Creative Arts Centre and the Woodstock Art Gallery, at the Oxford Studio Tour and various other venues through Oxford Creative Connections. Her work has been accepted for exhibit at the Glenhyrst Art Gallery and has been regularly selected for the Woodstock Art Gallery Visual Elements Exhibition. Ruth is a long time member of the Ingersoll Creative Arts Centre, Woodstock Art Gallery and Oxford Creative Connections. She is also a member of the Brantford Potters Guild, the Ingersoll Creative Arts Centre and Fusion: The Ontario Clay and Glass Association, through which she has attended many invaluable workshops to enhance her art.
