Roman Vase in Lemon V

Roman Vase in Lemon V by London-based glass artist Michael Ruh. A one-off piece that references the shape and form of Roman glass bottles unearthed in and around London. Glassblowing developed in the Syro-Palestinian region in the early first century B.C. and it is thought to have come to Rome after the area's annexation to the Roman world in 64 B.C. Here, Michael explores the expanded range of techniques that revolutionised the Italian glass industry. The latest additions to this wonderful series are rendered in subtle amber-straw hues or contrasting vibrant lemon yellow.

Making hand blown glass is a long, absorbing process whereby molten glass is gradually rolled and manipulated into shape. While Michael’s functional pieces may seem simple, each object is a technical challenge requiring precise timing, perpetual movement and teamwork.
