Biography

 

Katja von Ruville, who grew up in Munich and the Rhineland, studied Art History in Oslo and Communication Design in Mainz. She has been working as a book designer for German publishers for more than 20 years. In 2003 she moved to Frankfurt and founded grassgrün* in 2006, her label for unique jewelry using resin and found objects. By then, her first light objects emerged, fragile works presented on lightboxes. From 2011 to 2018 she attended Merja Herzog-Hellstén’s sculpture class, partly at the Städelschule Adult Education Program, working with plaster, resin, porcelain and material from nature. Her work is fragile and transluscent.
