Jochen Rüth

Jochen Rüth’s current ceramic work is determined by two principal themes. On the one hand, he creates beautifully shaped vases in earthy tones and tea bowls recalling Japanese ceramics: practical pieces with high aesthetic appeal. Their surface textures’ result from grasses, which Rüth applies before firing. On the other hand, he makes sculptural vessels, which are also used in ikebana, and non-utilitarian objects and sculptures. Typical features here are broken edges, rough surfaces and cracks, which may direct the gaze into the piece’s interior and remind the viewer of Earth’s primal forces, geological processes and formations. “Transience and transformation are the themes of my work,” the ceramic artist says.
