Ruth Moilliet produces highly finished sculptures inspired by the plant kingdom. In her work she aims to draw the viewer’s attention to both the overall spectacle and individual beauty of a flower.

Her work is inspired by her close study of a particular species and the beautiful, intricate forms she discovers. The finished pieces and the materials used explore the apparent fragility of an individual plant contrasted with its ability to sustain existence through ongoing lifecycles.

Her sculptures are predominantly made from metal but she often combines other materials such as glass and acrylic to reflect her interpretation of a particular structure.

In recent years Ruth’s concern for the serious effects of climate change and the decline in plant species and insects has led her to create work that draws attention to this and the causes. With this in mind she has developed a new body of work created from recycled materials, with a focus on producing and utilising sheets made by heat pressing discarded, single use plastics.

Ruth’s artworks are limited editions, she has created numerous commissions and her work features in corporate, institutional and private collections both internationally and across the UK.
