Margo Sawyer


hand-painted stained glass on float glass, stainless steel, and stainless steel cable
48 x 24 1/2 inches

Color, light, and geometry have long been Margo Sawyer’s chosen vocabulary, and she has used them to explore a wonderful range of physical and psychological possibilities. Her recent series of suspended, hand-painted stained-glass work are the connected to her working relationship with renowned glass studio Franz Mayer of Munich, as well has her architectural glass installations at the University of Houston-Victoria; the United States Embassy in Pristina, Kosovo; and Sam Houston State University. Because these works hang out from the wall, an ever-changing sense of movement and transparency creates a dynamic relationship between the viewer and their surroundings. Sawyer was appointed the Texas State Three-Dimensional Visual Artist Laureate (2015), and she was awarded the Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Award (2001), a Japan Foundation Visual Arts Fellowship (1996), and two Fulbright Research Awards – a Senior Research Fellowship to Japan (1995–96) and to India (1982–83).
