TUTOR PROFILE - RUTH DRESMAN

Ruth Dresman makes vessels in coloured glass, with sandblasted design which emphasise the colour transparency and translucency of the material. She has evolved a distinctive technique which is exclusive to her studio, based on the controlled removal of layers of coloured glass to describe her designs.

After studying 3D Design: Glass at West Surrey College of Art & Design, Ruth worked as a studio assistant at The Glasshouse, London and then became craftsperson in residence at a gallery in Salisbury. She then spent a year travelling to the USA, Mexico, Indonesia and India before returning to her native Wiltshire to set up her independent glass studio in 1986. Ruth was commissioned by Buckingham Palace on behalf of Her Majesty The Queen to make gifts for the Sultan of Brunei and his family during the Royal Visit in 1998, and has also made architectural commissions for public and private sites, including an architectural sculpture commission at New Salisbury Hospital in collaboration with blacksmith Jayne Fortune. Ruth is based in West Knoyle near Warminster.
