THE MICHAEL RUH STUDIO is a small studio run by glassblower Michael Ruh and Natasha Wahl. After meeting in a Belgian glass blowing studio in 1995, they spent many years traveling together and making glass across America. In April of 2004, they decided to set up a studio in South London where two now produce hand-blown glass objects of exquisite colour, texture, and form. While glass blowing is an artform that has declined in popularity, the glass whisperer and master of his movement, Michael Ruh, strives to keep this craft alive.
This London based studio uses traditional techniques to create alluring glass home accessories, tableware and lighting while creating unique commissions for private clients, designers and architects. Michael and Natasha find specific colour inspiration from breathtaking midwestern landscapes, light, nature and destinations ranging from Norway to the coast of California. Pieces are created featuring abstract line-work spun round the inside—Michael Ruh’s signature lines that are applied boldly and assertively. All pieces are uniquely different and come signed on the base by Michael Ruh.
