Marguerite Beneke

Marguerite is a contemporary warm glass artist creating paintings and textures in glass.She has worked with many mediums over the years but fell in love with glass because it is a material that transmits and reflects light as almost no other material can do. 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 her because one is surrendering a part of the formation process to the kiln. 

In her work she likes to express what she find interesting and beautiful in life. A lot of her work has been about her love of the Karoo landscapes, combining it with the freedom of abstract designs. Her work invites the viewer to interact with each piece in not only a point of view, but to use their fingertips, to explore the glass and stir the thoughts of the mind. 

More recently, she has been exploring the use of wood, steel, copper wire and opacities of different glasses together, to create sculptural pieces. She see her work as fusing the art of painting and sculptural design to achieve as much dimensionality and texture as possible. 

Her work is exhibited in galleries throughout South Africa and has been sold to international clients. She has done commissions for the South African Air Force and other corporate companies.
