Ruth Duckworth Large VesselIn this intimate documentary, filmmaker Karen Carter focuses her perceptive eye on then 83-year-old Ruth Duckworth, one of America's leading ceramicists. 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.
