Ruth Easterbrook (b. 1984) has always enjoyed the process of working with clay, and the magic in the transformation of firing and glazes. She creates pots with the idea of interactive art; that they will become part of the sharing, presentation, and pleasure that comes with making and enjoying food. In her work, she investigates the domestic landscapes by creating utilitarian vessels which take inspiration from plant-like characteristics in form and decoration.
She Ruth received earned her BFA in Ceramics from Syracuse University in 2007. She has apprenticed as a production potter at Hoyman-Browe Studios and assisted various ceramic artists and studios. She has shown work nationally at places such as Baltimore Clayworks and Carbondale Clay Center. Ruth has had extensive experience at leading art centers such as Penland School of Craft, in a spring concentration and at Anderson Ranch Arts Center, as a student, summer intern and most recently a artist in resident in 2016. Currently, she is an MFA candidate at Alfred University.
