Ruth Moilliet produces highly finished metal and glass sculptures inspired by the plant kingdom. In her work she aims to draw the viewer’s attention to both the overall spectacle and individual beauty of a flower.
Her work is inspired by her close study of a particular species and the beautiful, intricate forms she discovers. The finished pieces and the materials used explore the apparent fragility of an individual plant contrasted with its ability to sustain existence through ongoing lifecycles.
Her sculptures are predominantly made from metal but she often combines other materials such as glass and acrylic to reflect her interpretation of a particular structure.
Ruth’s artworks are limited editions, she has created numerous commissions and her work features in corporate, institutional and private collections both internationally and across the UK.
