Ruth Shelley Glass Artist
Ruth Shelley


Ruth studied woven textiles at art at college transferring to glass after travelling in Asia. Taking her cue from her travels her inspiration comes from observing colour, balance and tones of nature. Her gravity dropped vessels create an interplay of light, form and colour and so they become as glass sculptures. Her signature is the use of vivid, dramatic colour in fused and kiln formed work, the beautiful countryside of mid Wales being a wonderful inspiration.
Ruth won the 2015 Glass Seller’s award at the British Glass Biennale. She exhibits in the UK and USA and has been awarded several training and project grants by the Welsh Arts Council.
