Rut Bryk began her work as a ceramic artist at the legendary art department of Arabia Factory in Helsinki in 1942. Her first phase in ceramic works is characterized by figurative motifs of fairytale like animals, birds, plants, human figures, and still lifes. Her works project an icon-like sincerity and she also worked on biblical topics. Among her favourite motifs were butterflies presumably due to her father’s hobby in epidopterology.

Her figurative works were partly inspired by George Braque, Marc Chagall and Paul Klee.
