Margaret Johnson New Release

After studying Fine Art and Sculpture at Goldsmiths College, Margaret Johnson became interested in painting watercolours. This in turn led to setting up her studio in Cornwall, where the sparkling aquamarine sea and shimmering fish provide inspiration for her wonderfully decorative glassware.

Margaret Johnson has a studio in Bude, Cornwall.

She uses a unique mix of straw silk fibre and precious metal foils to create her highly sought after vases, bowls and candle holders.

Margaret Johnson also takes inspiration from ancient Japanese techniques. Using straw silk fibres in layers with precious metal foils, gold and silver leaf, all her glass is meticulously crafted. There is an amazing level of detail in the glorious swirls and shoals of metallic shimmering fish that feature on the majority of her work.

She produces an impressive range of different decorative glassware.

Glow Pots, Candle Holders

Plates and Bowls

Vases, some larger ones are floor standing.

Very large pieces such as tables, glass panels and art canvases.

She spends much of her leisure time painting in watercolour, which has provided another source of inspiration in the use of rich overlapping colours and textures. Each piece is designed and signed by the artist.
