"Colour, form and serendipity are at the very centre of my work"

Ruth Tabet

Ruth was brought up in a household dominated by ceramics.  Her father, formerly a captain in the British Army, reinvented himself in the early 70s as a craft potter in the tradition of Bernard Leach.  Tucked away in rural Hampshire, at the time, this was viewed as a bohemian and radical rejection of the status quo

Reinvention is a quality Ruth has inherited.  After 27 years as a successful interior designer, Ruth had a creeping compulsion to gain artistic control of her own work.

Unlike her father’s work, Ruth’s vision is not about utility: it is driven by an obsession with and expression of beauty. ‘I work always towards an ideal of perfection but I’ve come to embrace the quirks of the entirely individual pieces I create.’
