Margaret  Johnson

Margaret Johnson

Margaret studied Fine Art and Sculpture at Goldsmith's College in London and taught for a number of years before developing her own practice. She currently works from her studio on the banks of the river in Exeter, Devon. 

Margaret uses a unique technique involving straw silk fibres to create her beautiful glass bowls, plates, and glowpots, each of which is delicately finished with gold or silver leaf. Her work explores the use of colour, texture, and translucency and her themes include water and fish, which are depicted used handmade papers in a range of colours and patterns. 

Margaret's designs feature on recycled glass bowls and vessels created by her. Each piece is delicately finished, capturing the translucency of water and the bright colours, movement, and shimmers of shoals of fish.
