Betty Woodman is one of the best-known and most highly respected ceramic artists. From one viewpoint 'Diptych: The Balcony' appears as two vases of flowers. The other side evokes an inviting view from a Mediterranean balcony, the vibrant glossy colours of a sunny garden contrasting with a matt white balustrade.
