Seeing the Light

Margaret O'Rorke will never go out of fashion. Currently on show at the Contemporary Applied Arts in the West End her work with light and translucent porcelain is at once both sculptural as well as 'functional' (if such a ghastly word can be applied to her stunning pieces). Margaret's experience with Koie Ryolji in Japan in the '90's is evident in the fine ceramic lighting pieces this 'potter extraordinaire' produces. By chance I met her a couple of weeks ago and as a result made a visit to her show, which is not to be missed. You will see imititations of her work in Heals, Conrans and anywhere that designer lighting is to be found. But Margaret's are works of art and genuine collectors pieces. Catch her show if you can!
