Marguerite Beneke

I am a contemporary warm glass artist creating paintings and textures in glass. I've worked with many mediums, but fell in love with glass because it is a material that transmits and reflects light as almost no other can. Its varying clarity, opacity and texture are able to reflect and absorb light, causing an enhanced observation of each piece. Glass fusing is particularly fascinating to me because one is surrendering a part of the formation process to the kiln. I like to express what I find interesting and beautiful in life. A lot of my work has been about my love of the Karoo landscapes, combining it with the freedom of abstract designs.
