Ruttenberg unfolds a tale in fired clay like an
elaborate children's book, an enchanted tale of dogs, birds, rabbits and
goats. The female figure plays a dominant role in the narrative. The
figure may be kneeling in a bed of flowers her dress covered with garden
vines and flowering branches, but the scene is one of pretend
innocence. Ruttenberg's work has a tattered history woven into its core.
"I like to think of my work as human stories with a
twist that adds an ironic edge in which titles, fantasy, myth and
concepts can all play a part".
