Ruth Fischer Rutkowsky is a potter and a sculptor, and her work often combines the two. Her work incorporates slip trailing, sgraffito carving, and wax resist emulating folk-art patterns of her German-Norwegian heritage. She also enjoys making commemorative pieces, custom designed for special occasions. Her sculpture provides a doorway to her creative expression, and her forms are both animal and human, sometimes even polymorphic and/or mythical. Her sculptures may be used on the table top, the wall, and/or in the home garden.

Ruth also teaches beginner wheel and sculpture classes in our Teaching Center.
