Margaret Heenan

Perth based Margaret Heenan consistently produces impeccably designed hand made glass art using vibrant colours and patterns.  Margaret’s linear work is highly structured and restrained.  She makes detailed drawings and paintings of her vintage designed pieces prior to cutting the glass, which must be accurate to achieve a seamless fit.  They give Margaret a feeling of nostalgia having grown up in the “swinging 60’s and 70’s” when they were appearing on the mass market on wallpapers, home wares and textiles.

Her painterly pieces are strongly influenced by her attraction to the Australian landscape, which is robust including great clarity of light. The colours, shape and complexity are endless.
