Ruth Shelley is a contemporary glass artist who specializes in kiln formed gravity-dropped vessels. She cuts multiple strips of glass, arranging them in complex layers and patterns which are fused into a flat sheet. The sheet is then suspended in a kiln on an open mould. Through controlled heat the glass becomes fluid and gravity stretches it to the floor of the kiln. It is then cut, polished and sandblasted to produce the finished vessel.
