I'm sad to report that Ruth Duckworth has passed away at the age of 90. ... 2009 has been a tough year. I am happy to say that Ruth lived a long life and had an invaluable contribution to the world of ceramics and for that we can be thankful.
Below is a wonderful profile from CBS Sunday Morning from just a few years ago. Apparently she was in the studio until just six weeks ago. We should all be so lucky.
