Miniature Glass Ornament ‘Indian Intarsia Oval Mini’ by Ruth Shelley
A wonderful piece of glass artistry, we present the miniature glass ornament ‘Indian Intarsia’
Turquoise, reds, oranges and greens envelop one another in this explosion of colour. This miniature glass ornament packs a punch when it comes to being beautiful and is all the more eye-catching with its oval shape.
Every single miniature glass ornament is different and this photo shows an example. Yours will be unique in every way and personally signed by Ruth Shelley
Miniature Glass Ornament Artist
Ruth Shelley is an award-winning glass artist who has been working with coloured glass for over 25 years. Her main interest is colour with shape, form and pattern following in close succession. Ruth’s signature style boasts vivid, dramatic colour in kiln formed glass which includes vessels, bowls and panels. She is especially interested in the reflection and refraction of light as it hits a glass object.
Her dropped vessels create an interplay of light, form and colour that is evocative of the natural world which surrounds us.
Although coming from a background of Textiles, Ruth has attended many masterclasses including North Lands Creative Glass, UK and Bullseye Resource Centre, the USA which enabled her to develop and experiment with shape, form and colour. She has also worked alongside architects on numerous restoration projects.
Ruth won the ‘Glass Sellers’ Award at the British Glass Biennale 2015 and her artwork has appeared in ‘Crafts’ and Crafts International. She has received many awards form the Welsh Arts Council. In addition, she is a member of the Contemporary Glass Society and the Makers Guild of Wales. Ruth is continually experimenting and pushing the limits of glass.
Her can be seen work in many UK galleries including London Glassblowing, Contemporary Applied Art and European galleries. Ruth has sold her work nationally and internationally.
