about the work and Maggie
Maggie Williams Glass works from Lincoln.
All work is mouth blown and hand finished, making each piece unique. Thirty different colours are used both transparent and opaque, and many more available on request.
Ideas are drawn from the natural world, in particular tropical plants with their luscious colours and shapes. From cacti to the deadly carnivorous Pitcher Plant, these plant forms are a constant source of inspiration. Interestingly most of the work evolves into vessels for flowers/
The unique Eden hanging vases can be hung in large numbers in offices, restaurants and other spaces, or in smaller groups in a house or an apartment.
The design process is demanding and, for Maggie, the discipline of design through making into marketing is essential. Working with hot glass is bewitching, addictive, challenging and often frustrating and a continuing learning curve. For commission work, time spent with the customer is both essential and enjoyable. The large range of colours allows choice and creativity in interior design projects for both corporate installations and individual clients.
