A small coloured glass pinch pot, inspired by Italian 'tazza', a shallow dish used as serveware. While simple in shape, the process of blowing each piece is complex and has taken extensive experimentation from Michael to perfect. Each pot is finished with an intentionally uneven rim – a reminder of the organic.
Making handblown glass is a long, absorbing process whereby molten glass is gradually rolled and manipulated into shape. While Michael’s pieces may seem simple, each object is a technical challenge requiring precise timing, perpetual movement and teamwork.
Michael Ruh is a celebrated glass artist creating blown glass pieces with a modern aesthetic. Since establishing his Studio in 2004, Michael has worked with simple, traditional tools that have been used throughout the centuries to craft exquisite tableware, lighting and home accessories.
Michael’s forms are each marked with his signature technique of scribing lines across the surface of each vessel. The technique is reminiscent of Japanese Bokuseki calligraphy- each stroke being applied with intent and assertion.
