Sculptures by David Ruth seen at Green Hill Tower, San Francisco - Takaroa Fountain

Takaroa Fountain

Takaroa Fountain, created by David Ruth, sits outside a condominium complex on Green Hill Tower. It depicts ice-like borosilicate glasses that bring gushes of water. The glass adds light and transparency to the sculpture, along with a sense of paradox because it is a clear, yet solid material.
"After I was introduced to the material I tried to erase the white veils but ultimately saw that they offered a new style of fused glass that resembles ice. Rather than the liquid flow I had been used to, the ice gave me a different way of conceptualizing my sculpture and fired my interest in ice as a metaphor for making glass."

""The mood of nature can be imparted... only by an artistic rendering of its inner spirit"
- Kadinsky

Producing custom cast glass for individual collectors, architects, and designers David Ruth has developed a wide range of aesthetic techniques and applications to the language of Sculpture and Architecture.

As an artist, David has created a unique cohesion between his more ephemeral personal sculpture and more site specific, client designed architectural work.

Casting this glass is a metaphorical exploration of the relationship between the inner self and the outside world.

Its roots are in the direct expression of visual abstract language, which speaks in color, line and form.

Glass adds light and transparency to the conversation, along with a sense of paradox because it is clear, yet solid material.

Like music, the trails of colors in the pieces resonate as notes that strike a chord and communicate directly with the viewer.
