Glass artist Rhian Haf captures falling shadows in her exhibition, Captured Moments, touring in Ruthin and Swansea

Rhian Haf, the award-winning glass artist from North Wales, will be presenting a major new show at the Ruthin Craft Centre and Mission Gallery this winter. The exhibition Captured Moments - explores the effects of light and glass. Highly polished pieces of glass are mounted in bespoke viewing boxes and lit, by LED lights, at slight variances of angles.

Captured Moments is a study of refracted light. The lit glass pieces catch shadows as they fall. Precision polished glass is housed in an intricately designed installation. This offers viewers seemingly transient impressions, of light through glass. Rhian captures these shifting effects and gives us the chance to appreciate, question and enjoy what we re seeing. Magical. Recent gold medal winner for Craft and Design at the National Eisteddfod 2015, Rhian's work explores the inter-relationship of glass and light. Her investigation into the properties of glass is leading her to discern a broader design potential.

Captured Moments will open at Ruthin Craft Centre on 27 November, for a private view, at 7pm. It will continue until 4 January when the show will then tour to Mission Gallery from 23 January 3 March.
