Ruth's pots are slab-built using a variety of prepared stoneware bodies. The form is then modified after the sections have been assembled giving each pot a unique character. After bisque firing slips are applied before the pots are salt-glazed in a 14cu. ft. propane gas kiln to 1260/80 degrees C.
Ruth King was bom in Enfield, Middx and trained at Camberwell School of Arts and Craft from 1974-77. She moved to York after four years living and working in London and moved to her current studio near York in 1987.
