The journey of an artist and the understated courage of a woman molded by a lifetime of obstacles overcome and barriers broken. In this intimate documentary, filmmaker Karen Carter focuses her perceptive eye on 83-year old working ceramist Ruth Duckworth. A study in contrasts, Duckworth’ s ostensibly simplistic philosophy, "Work comes from play," belies the complexity of her vision, from her ceramic sculpture to her extraordinary mural work. Calling herself a survivor, Ruth fled Hitler’s Germany, studied at the Liverpool School of Art in England, and taught sculpture at the University of Chicago. As Carter’s conversational portrait reveals, Ruth did more than survive; she became a pioneering artist, enriching the form of nurturing our collective wonderment through A Life in Clay. Celebrated as one of our nation’ s leading ceramists, Duckworth is recognized for her creative influence on the art of ceramics, her work gracing museums and private collections around the world. Producer/Director, Karen Carter is the winner of the 1998 Roy Dean Film Grant and numerous other industry awards. In addition to the documentaries Brave Girls and Ask Not: People Who Make a Difference, she produced and directed the shorts series, Me In A Box, for the Nickelodeon Network.
