Coil building with Ruth Jones
Coil building with Ruth Jones

Last week the Modern Makers spent the day with Ruth Jones in her studio in Moniaive. 

Ruth's work is inspired by prehistoric Beaker ware, Romano-British and Medieval wares, Staffordshire slipware and other world ceramics. Ruth uses various techniques in her work creating hand thrown, brightly coloured tableware and smoke fired hand-built forms.

The day focussed on coil building, building up layers by hand before smoothing out the clay to create small pots.
