Ruth Byrne threw her first pot on the pottery wheel at the age of 15 and has loved it ever since, learning from local potter Catherine Phillips. She then made her way to the ANU School of Art in Canberra where she cemented her love of functional ceramics.

Ruth is influenced by her experience with pottery in Japan, China and her home landscape in Australia. In particular the ritual nature of pottery, in tea ceremonies in Japan and large communal meals in China and at home.

Clay is such a process driven material, and Ruth enjoys demonstrating the nature of clay at its various stages. The makers ‘spiral’ mark is visible on the inside of the pots, while the facets on the outside and undulating rims are reminiscent of the rolling hills of the Orange region.
