Trailblazer. Rebel. Revolutionary.

The Geologic Editions and Sculpture represents David Ruth’s singular achievement in cast glass. The series of sculptures is formed of composite patterns of rock and ice taken from Antarctica and the Berkeley Hills. This work is the result of more than thirty years of study and experience that employs melding expression of ideas with the formulation of colored glasses. The Geologic Editions represent a continental collision in deep time using patterns of geology to tell a human and geologic story through light. Please join us for a celebration of this glass sculpture at the Marienthal House.
A special thanks to Kim and Barbara Marienthal for hosting this event!

David Ruth is a San Francisco Bay Area artist who is internationally known for setting cast glass in architectural spaces. Melding the transcendence of light and the sensitivity of contemporary sculpture and the ancient art of glassmaking. David Ruth’s artworks inspire viewers to see new possibilities in form, color, and imagery. Ruth’s glass sculptures and his architectural glass murals showcase technical prowess and artistic mastery as they use patterns of geology to tell human and time-based stories through the wonder of natural light and the movement of the sun.
ABOUT THE HOUSE
1 Montrose was designed by Robert Ratcliff, of the eminent Berkeley Ratcliff architecture firm. This house was built in 1953 for the owner of Cala Foods. At the time of its construction, it was one of the most luxurious houses built in Berkeley. The house itself was made from a recycled redwood bridge from Sonoma County. It features a great deal of glass; high ceilings with clerestory windows, 8-foot glass doors, and wrap-around windows in all the living areas. The dark redwood walls create an intimate space which is dramatic for glass sculpture viewing.
