Ruth Burink

Selected Writings “Ruth Burink’s work literally takes one’s breath away…feel much like poetry, carving a graceful space using her beautiful mind.” Spiritual Continuum, Virginia L. Clark, Tempo Magazine/the Taos News “I carve because I love the carving process. I can’t imagine doing anything else!” interview with Burink for Ruth Burink, An American Stone Sculptor in Florence…, Diana Dietvorst, Sculptural Pursuit, Vol. 3 No. 2 “Your studio seemed such a place of wholeness. I never thought I would be able to actually purchase such a beautiful piece. It has such a sense of grace and simplicity combined with a beautiful theme.” Debbie Saxon, Client “It is amazing when someone can create beautiful art, but the true beauty of what Ruth was able to do was to create a piece of art that melded together the completely different personalities in our marriage.” Robyn Graham, Client “She is dedicated to her art and to making a difference in her world through how her sculpture affects the viewer.” Constance Gelvin, Client.
