 Background

I have been self-employed as an artist for over 25 years. Having run a successful designer/maker hand made gift business for 15 years, I went back to study at the age of 35. I graduated with a First Class Honours degree in Ceramics and Sculpture in 2003. 


I have taught  at the University of Wolverhampton on the Applied Arts degree covering Professional Practice and Creative Industry modules with final year degree students, as well as ceramic techniques to all levels. I also lead workshops in ceramics, ceramics and print, and deliver workshops and talks in schools and colleges to all ages and levels of ability.


Over the last 15 years I have been involved in Public Art, Sculpture and Project Management, working with bricks and ceramics, and have been an Arts Council funded artist. I have been involved in a wide variety of projects as joint lead artist and project manager of Benchart, a public art company based in Shrewsbury. 


 Ruth Gibson Ceramics exhibits widely throughout galleries in the UK and at National  Ceramic Shows and events such at 'Earth and Fire' and 'Art in Clay'.
