Taking her cue from her love of traveling, Ruth Shelley’s inspiration derives from her observation of colour, balance and tone in nature. Her gravity dropped vessels create an interplay of light, form and colour that is evocative of the natural world which surrounds us. This series of work revisits her background in textiles, concentrating on Ikat Weave and knitting patterns. Owing to the nature of the applications, Shelley’s vessels are one-offs. It is not possible to make two identical pieces.
