Margaret Neher

Flameworker Margaret Neher recreates and preserves forever the fleeting beauty found in nature. Working over an open flame, she translates the fragile delicacy of orchids, wildlife and everyday fruits into lasting art objects.

Neher began working with glass in 1984 and spent several years making kaleidoscopes. Drawn to lampworking in 1991, she soon devoted herself exclusively to this process. A nine-time NICHE Award finalist and three-time winner, her work has been featured in numerous publications, and is owned by collectors worldwide.
