1916 –1999

Rut Bryk is an artist who is primarily known for her ceramic art works. The works of her first figurative phase are wall pieces depicting still lifes, architectural motifs, mythological themes, plants and birds. In the late 1960s she began to produce large architectural ceramic wall pieces composed of numerous differently shaped and coloured modules. Many of her monumental pieces are integral to important architectural projects such as Helsinki City Hall, the Finnish Embassy in New Delhi and the Residence of the President of the Republic of Finland.

In addition to her purely artistic work, she designed simple vividly coloured ceramic objects of geometric inspiration, exquisitely coloured textiles and graphic surface decorations for Tapio Wirkkala’s industrial porcelain objects.

Rut Bryk’s work has been exhibited worldwide and is included the collections of major international museums.
