Ruthanne Tudball

Ruthanne Tudball, originally from California, is one of the UK’s leading soda-glazed potters.

She will be demonstrating different forms and methods of making, throwing with soft clay on the wheel; throwing elements of pots “off the hump”, manipulating them eg.faceting and changing their shape and assembling them while wet before lifting the finished pot off the wheel.

All of my work is thrown and manipulated while wet on the wheel. In an attempt to capture the softness in the finished piece, I do very little turning (trimming), and when the turning is done, it mainly happens at the soft stage. After firing and transforming the clay to stone, that softness can still be seen.
