Ruth Henry

A recent graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design, Ruth received her BFA in Furniture Design. Her current practice consists of making commissioned furniture pieces alongside sculptural works which deal with her interest in how ambiguity can encourage intuitive use of the objects around us. She loves working in both wood and metal, as well as having a passion for woven textiles. She balances her fabrication work with the production of woven rugs and sculptural textiles. Ruth works as a chair fabricator in a local Providence woodshop, and a Public Projects artist at the Steel Yard.
