David Ruth
David Ruth has created large scale sculptures through glass casting for the last thirty years. He seeks to contrast rough textures with polished surfaces, along with bright, dynamic colors.

His work has been featured in several galleries, including Traver Gallery and the Joyce Gordon Gallery. One of Ruth's current projects includes texture molds from glacial ice and stone in Antartica. Ruth currently resides in Oakland California.
