London based Michael Ruh Studio designs and creates hand-made glassware for both individuals and luxury brands. We produce tableware, vases, lighting and undertake commissioned work for interior designers, architects and private clients.
Michael's preferred style is utilitarian with intelligent shaping. His work draws on an exceptional understanding of colour, nuanced by pilgrimage to his colour house in Germany (every year for the past 20 years) to study the alchemy of colouring glass.
His work is exhibited internationally and available from the Michael Ruh Shop or from a handful of reputable retailers. In 2014 the BBC broadcast a 15 minute film featuring Michael creating a jug from scratch.
The Michael Ruh Studio creates bespoke and custom handmade glass, tableware, vases, lighting and sculptural objects. Michael brings his extensive 20 years experience as a master craftsman to each project to create unique pieces made using only the purest optical grade glass.
Working internationally Michael Ruh's work is seen in hotels, private residences and restaurants. Clients include Christian Dior, Liberty, Barneys, Bergdorf Goodman, Ochre, Conran Associates,Nicole Farhi, Mint, Poliform, WHotel Donna Karan and you.
