Details about work or recent projects
Margareth has recently completed a large public art commission, a permanent installation for a new culture house in Norway, which is due to open in October 2014. The installation is an inspiration of the Northern Lights and includes 140 glass elements suspended from a ceiling in a waveform.

The commission has taken 1.5 years from design to completion.
