My name is Ruti, I live and work in Israel.
My studio is located in the backyard of my house.
I spend many hours at the studio, working and watching the trees, feeling the weather changes through the studio’s windows.
The Mediterranean colors influence me. I often use light-blue, green and yellow as basic colors,
then I paint the flowers.
The flowers remind me of embroidery that used to decorate old tablecloths.
I usually work with grainy terracotta clay. It emphasizes the colors.
In addition to the hand-painted pottery, I also work with white clay and white-creamy glaze.
This line of pottery is different, it has a pure and clean look.
I am happy when each work has its own unique character. I like the surprises when opening the kiln !
