Margaret O'Rorke Lighting
The translucency of fine high-fired porcelain has led me to throw forms which give light. These ideas stem from the nature of the material, forms that can grow from the potter's wheel, the process of firing and a sense of adventure with light and space.
In early 2021 I was delighted to be invited to join Women in Lighting: the international group of lighting designers, makers, innovators and engineers. Find out more About Women in Lighting here.
