Sphaera Vase in Tourmaline (Large)

Michael Ruh
Sphaera Vase in Tourmaline (Large) by Michael Ruh. Inspired by ancient Roman glassware, the Collum Vase collection also pays homage to Michael's classic Chelsea Jar form to commemorate the anniversary and success of this beloved series of work. Many of the Roman glasses from the Museum of London are unadorned and functional; this collection is a paean to simplicity, finding the perfect balance between line, form, function and history.

The Maker Michael Ruh Glass Artist - South East England

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.
