Ruta Brown based in the gallery. Ruta's work is available in the Jewellery Room and Ruta's studio.
Ruta is specialised in the technique of reticulation. Directional heat is applied to forged, folded forms, each piece individually fabricated, in exploration of the structural limits of the metal, mainly sterling silver with 18 carat gold as added decoration. The results are a variety of intricate forms, often also incorporating stones and pearls, details evoking weathered fragments of flotsam, or other marine elements from the shoreline.
After gaining a BA (Hons) in Fine Art (Sculpture) at West Surrey College of Art and Design, Ruta Brown studied silversmithing before setting up an independent jewellery studio. Ruta has exhibited widely in Britain and also in America, Japan, Egypt and Switzerland.
