Meg Oldman - Glass and Crystal
Meg Oldman has been creating beautiful sand-carved crystal and glass art for over twenty years. She uses both representational and abstract designs to communicate in a language of emotion and empathy. Much of her work is inspired by the current events that shape our lives, as well as her visions of a peaceful world.
Through her development of distinctive etching and carving techniques, Meg creates a broad spectrum of artwork in glass and crystal.
Her work includes architectural scale installations, finely detailed crystal vases, kiln-slumped bowls and illuminations. Meg carves her designs using pressurized sand, accentuating the deeper carved areas with light frosting techniques for balance and depth.
Currently, Meg is focusing on the use of cultural symbols and images from nature to create synergy in her designs. She looks to bring harmony and balance into homes and offices through her elegant installations. A recent project, a wedding gift for the Crown Prince and Princess of Japan, incorporates these ideals using cranes to represent long life and success. An additional pair of cranes in flight symbolizes a lasting partnership, and oshi-dori birds symbolize love for fellow human beings.
