Ruth Moilliet studied a Foundation in Art and Design at Manchester Metropolitan University, and continued onto a BA Homours course in Fine Art (Sculpture) and then a Masters degree in Art as Environment. She has won numerous awards, including the AHRB Postgraduate Professional and Vocational Award to study her MA, the North West Arts Board, Setting Up Scheme Award and Placement in 2001-2003 and Best Bespoke Accessory for ‘Allium’ in the Design and Decoration Awards 2004. She exhibits at numerous prestigious solo and group exhibitions throughout the UK and has completed commissions for Kew Gardens, The Oasis of the Seas cruise ship, and many luxury hotels, public gardens and commercial developments. Moilliet produces highly finished metal and glass 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.
