Margaret Neher

Fascinated by nature’s endless variety of shapes and color, yet frustrated by their ephemeral nature, Margaret Neher turned to glass. “I’m drawn to the challenge of working to capture a complex, ever-changing living thing in an unchanging form.” Neher uses flameworking to translate the fragile delicacy, vibrant colors, and unique details of nature—both flora and fauna—into lasting art objects.
