Ruth Duckworth : Modernist sculptor by Jo Lauria( Book )

12 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a career spanning more than six decades, Ruth Duckworth has created an immense and important body of work. Her ambition, intensity, and defiance of convention have governed her personal journey - fleeing from Nazi Germany to England at the outset of World War II, and settling in the United States in the mid-1960s - as well as her prodigious artistic output. Although Duckworth started out sculpting in stone, and has created both intimate and large-scale artworks in bronze and other materials, she has since the early 1960s predominantly worked in clay. It is for her work in this medium that she is recognized as one of the twentieth century's most innovative and significant sculptors. A true alchemist of abstraction, Duckworth has consistently produced barrier-bending art that is elegant yet at the same time buoyant, visionary works of seductive refinement, austere power, and radiant immediacy that masterfully continue the aesthetics of modernism into the twenty-first-century." "This volume, which accompanies a major touring exhibition provides a long-overdue assessment of Duckworth's significance. It reveals the conceptual and iconographic foundations that Duckworth's work shares with other important modernist sculptors."--Jacket

Hand-in-hand : ceramics, mosaics, tapestries and woodcarvings by the California mid-century designers Evelyn and Jerome Ackerman by Dan Chavkin( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hand-in-hand : ceramics, mosaics, tapestries, and woodcarvings by the California mid-century designers Evelyn & Jerome Ackerman is the first monograph of the artists whose oeuvre was critically influential and is now seen as the epitome of California mid-century modernism. With a preface by Jonathan Adler, the book tracks the couple's careers in the decorative arts from their beginnings to the creation of Jenev Design Studio and its eventual shift to ERA Industries, as well as their involvement in every prestigious California Design exhibition from 1954 to 1976. Additionally, after almost 30 years of work they continued to create and develop their styles. The Ackermans became known for their uses of a wide spectrum of mediums including weaving, ceramics, wood carvings, and mosaics. The Ackermans' individualistic and innovative techniques also ensured that great design be both accessible and affordable. Featuring many never-before-seen preparatory drawings and color guides, this book tells the heartening story of a successful collaboration and celebrated partnership, in not only design, but in life

Exuberant earth : ceramics by Ruth Rippon by Ruth Rippon( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study in Rippon's extensive repertoire of techniques, Exuberant Earth: Ceramics by Ruth Rippon reveals the artist's range in sgraffito, relief modeling, majolica, porcelain, and sculpture. Rippon's earlier works show the artist's connection to spiritual themes, Biblical tales, mythological beings, and every day personal interactions. Her innate talent for storytelling is especially evident in her figural groupings, art history tableaux, and Pop Art-inspired objects. Altogether, her work testifies to the creative surge in ceramics that occurred during the 1960s and 70s, and which endures today. Featuring small examples of her figurative work, the exhibition gives a nod to the large-scaled figures of women known as Lollies, short for 'Little Old Ladies', which became a focus in the latter years of Rippon's career and are displayed in public spaces throughout the greater Sacramento area. The exhibition also explores Rippon's responses to contemporary events, developments in art, and the work of her regional colleagues. Exhibition: Crocker Art Museum, Sacramento, USA (29.10.2.017 - 04.02.2018)
