Ruta Brown

Ruta Brown based in the gallery. Ruta's work is available in the Jewellery Room and Ruta's studio.

Ruta is a master of the intricate technique of reticulation. Through the precise application of directional heat to forged and folded forms, she meticulously crafts each piece, exploring the structural limits of metals. The primary medium is sterling silver, adorned with delicate 18-carat gold embellishments. The results are a breathtaking array of intricate forms, often enhanced by the inclusion of precious stones and pearls. Ruta beautifully captures the essence of weathered fragments, reminiscent of flotsam or marine elements found along the shoreline.

Educated with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art (Sculpture) from West Surrey College of Art and Design, Ruta Brown further honed her skills through dedicated studies in silversmithing. Transitioning into an independent jewelry studio, she has gained acclaim through extensive exhibitions not only in Britain but also internationally, spanning America, Japan, Egypt, and Switzerland.

Ruta's jewellery is available in the Jewellery Room and her personal studio within the gallery.

Ruta's work goes beyond borders, leaving its mark in exhibitions across the globe. Every piece tells a story, beautifully crafted by the hands of a sculptural maker.
