ARTISANS & MAKERS // Michael Ruh, Glassmaker

Behind the Scenes of London’s Michael Ruh Glassmaker Studio

Michael Ruh and Natascha Wahl are the partnership behind Michael Ruh Studio, where they design and create a range of handmade glass tableware, vases and bespoke commissions. All of this magic comes out of their wonderful studio in Tulse Hill in South London.

I had the fortune of spending a couple of days there while Michael and his assistant, Adriana, worked on a series of awards. The Beacon Awards for Philanthropy had asked Michael to design and create a number of glass awards for their awards ceremony held in London on April 21st this year. You can see some of Michael’s finished pieces in the video on the Beacon website.

These photos hopefully give a little insight into just how much effort goes into the pieces Michael’s studio produce. If you’re looking for a commercial photographer to work with to create a series of photographs to tell the story of your business, get in touch.
