Ruth Shelley is an award winning glass artist who has been working with coloured glass for over 25 years. 
From her studio in Cardiff, Ruth produces colourful kiln formed glass vessels which are inspired by her love of travel and observation of colour, balance and tone of nature.
Her gravity dropped vessels create an interplay of light, form and colour that is evocative of the natural world around us.
Ruth is continually experimenting and pushing the limits of glass and her training in Woven Textiles is evident in her collections.


Ruth won the Glass Sellers Award at the British Glass Biennale in 2015 with her striking ‘Indian Intarsia’ piece.




We are delighted to welcome Ruth to A Heart of Glass and to be stocking her beautiful pieces within our assortment.




Summer Showcase




The Art & Antiques for Everyone Summer Showcase launches online on Thursday 16th July.


The fair at the NEC in Birmingham was due to open on 16th July but has moved online instead, so you can enjoy the best of what's on offer from the comfort of your own home.


Shop for beautiful and unique pieces from over 70 dealers, selling a wide variety of quality art and antiques to suit all tastes and budgets.


Each participating dealer will have their own page, showcasing 7 amazing pieces from their current stocks. You'll find links through to their own website and social media channels so you can view further available items.






New Arrivals



We will shortly be receiving a delivery of 45 beautiful new pieces from our artists in the Czech Republic.

Having left the EU and with a new trade agreement yet to be finalised, we are uncertain at this stage what our future will be regarding Czech glass.

This will be our last collection for quite some time and we hope you will find something to tempt you- we certainly did!

Here's a taster of what to expect...



Details will be added to our gallery pages over the coming weeks.

Our prices are inclusive of postage within the UK and we are happy to provide quotes for sending elsewhere.

Many thanks for your continued support and we wish all our customers very best wishes.
