Ruby Pilven

Ruby is a ceramic artist based in Victoria who creates brilliantly coloured porcelain ceramics. Having grown up with ceramic artists for parents,

Ruby has been involved in ceramics from an early age.

Ruby studied business and printmaking at university and draws strongly on her printmaking background, marrying her passion for printmaking

and ceramics in her work by creating layers of colour and pattern.  

Her work is a contemporary twist on the Japanese technique called Nerikomi, hand-building with coloured clay. This technique explores her long

fascination and relationship with Japanese culture and her connection with the contemporary Australian art scene. Her work oscillates between

structured techniques and chance operations.
