exquisite glass object by Michael Ruh studio
Michael Ruh is a glass designer based in London creating hand-blown glass objects of exquisite texture, colour, and form.
The studio is run by Micheal Ruh and partner Natascha Wahl who met in a Belgian glass blowing studio in 1995 and after travelling extensively, set up a workshop near home in South London in 2004. The studio uses traditional techniques to produce covetable glass tableware, lighting, and home accessories. They also work on custom commissions with private clients, designers, and architects. One such collaboration is with Perfumer Lyn Harris engaging Michael Ruh for her Perfumer H bespoke and monogrammed fragrance bottles in her atelier in Marylebone.
