About the Work
We are so lucky to have Rick Rudd and the Quartz Museum of Ceramics here in Whanganui. I am fortunate to have several pieces of his work. It is primarily a celebration of line – of the uninterrupted curve. It is absolutely, deliciously satisfying from every angle – absolute perfection. Ballet Dancers put themselves through endless muscular disciplines to develop the skills to achieve the same faultless contour.
