Inspired by the Coast - Art by Ruth Lyne
I have always been intrigued by the natural colours and textures of the sea shore, by the wide horizons and the surface of the cliffs. Fusing glass with metal leaf at temperatures of over 800 degrees allows me to create permanent artworks inspired by memories of the coast.
I take lots of photographs whenever I am by the sea. They help me remember the feeling of being there, of walking on the shingle and listening to the waves. These memories are more important to me than an accurate record of the view.
Although I am inspired by the coast, I make all my work in my studio in rural Northamptonshire, a very long way from the sea.
