Biography Ruth Duckworth
"Ruth Duckworth, Sculptor and Muralist, Dies at 90"
By WILLIAM GRIMES
Ruth Duckworth, a sculptor whose work in clay and bronze included monumental sculptures and murals, as well as small-scale, intimate pieces, died last Sunday in Chicago. She was 90.
Her death was confirmed by Thea Burger, her agent.
Ms. Duckworth followed an idiosyncratic career path, starting as a stone mason in Britain and not turning to ceramics until her 40s, bringing a sculptor's sensibility to it. Intent on doing large-scale ceramic work, then out of favor in Britain, she accepted a teaching appointment at the University of Chicago in 1964 and began executing monumental ceramic murals and, later, bronze sculptures.
