Norwegian born Margareth predominantly works with the medium of glass, combining digital production and traditional making processes. She is based at the National Glass Centre in Sunderland where she completed her PhD in water jetting technology and glass in December 2011. Working with the medium for 16 years, her skill-base is broad ranging, in terms of production methods and application.
She has received numerous prizes, awards and scholarships for her artwork and has participated in several international exhibitions and design fairs, such SOFA New York, the British Glass Biennale (UK,) 100% Design, (UK), Designers Block, (UK), Coburger Glass Prize Exhibition, (DE), Design Mart (UK) and unusual places such as the House of Commons, the British Parliament.
Margareth has recently completed a large public art commission, a permanent installation for a new culture house in Norway, which is due to open in October 2014. The installation is an inspiration of the Northern Lights and includes 140 glass elements suspended from a ceiling in a waveform. The installation combines glass and LED sequences of light, constantly changing. Pictures of the commission will be available to see after the official opening. The commission has taken 1.5 years from design to completion.
