Michael Ruh at Michael Ruh Studio

Michael Ruh and his wife Natascha met in the 1990s while studying glass blowing in Belgium. After starting out on their own in 1999 they now operate out of their own dedicated studio in Tulse Hill. Their beautiful pieces are created with nothing but heat, gravity, time and a few simple tools that haven’t changed for centuries, and are inspired by the colours and textures seen while travelling across the wilderness of the US in their camper van, ‘Woody’. With a 1100C furnace of molten glass it’s hot work, but their distinctive pieces are now sought out by commercial and private clients across the globe.
