Sphaera Vase in Smoke (Small)

Smoke Sphaera Vase (Small) by glass artist Michael Ruh, forms part of a new collection inspired by glassware that dates back to Ancient Rome. Many of the Roman glasses from the museum of London are unadorned and functional, hence this collection is a paean to simplicity; finding the perfect balance between line, form, function and history. The piece also pays homage to Michael's classic Chelsea Jar form to commemorate the anniversary and success of this beloved collection.

These new vases demonstrate a varied range of forms, suitable for experimenting with different styles of floral arrangements. While Michael’s pieces may seem simple, each object is a technical challenge requiring precise timing, perpetual movement and teamwork.
The Maker Michael Ruh Glass Artist - London

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.
