Ruth Hazi ceramic sculptures respond to Nature.
Nature can be grand, chaotic, and delicate.
Its impulse nourishes a cyclical exchange between life and death.
Layers upon layers of organic shapes are her fascination.
Focusing on the hidden spaces with much curiosity as if she was reading between the lines.
Ruth is especially inspired by the desert. Yet, her art reminds us of the underwater creatures and coral world. Ruth offers us impermanence that invites us to retrace and remember, as she brings to life patterns and textures.
