In my work I like to express what I find interesting and beautiful in life. A lot of my work has been about my love of the Karoo landscapes, combining it with the freedom of abstract designs. My work invites the viewer to interact with each piece in not only a point of view, but to use their fingertips, to explore the glass and stir the thoughts of the mind.

My work is exhibited in galleries throughout South Africa and has been sold to international clients. I have done commissions for the South African Air Force and other corporate companies.

Marguerite says...

"​I am very excited to be hosted as a guest speaker at Glass Emotions, Canada. Crystal has been absolute wonderful in helping me through the whole process in getting there.

It is an honour to be a guest speaker at such a professional studio and having that experience as part of my glass journey.

I am looking forward to meeting everyone and sharing my techniques.”
