From the blurb on the back of the DVD: 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 simple 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 and nurturing our collective wonderment through “A Life in Clay.” (30 min.)
