Marie Retpen exhibits “Still Life Meltdown”

Marie Retpen is a Danish glass designer and maker graduating this summer from The Royal College of Art.

With a background in traditional Scandinavian techniques from Kosta Glass School, her work balances precariously between sculpture and design.

The fluidity of the hot glass mixed with the functional creates a surreal body of work that would be a talking point in any environment.

Through her making Marie is constantly developing new ways of creating forms often using different materials like paper, wood or clay to shape the glass.

Her full range of products from tumblers to vases and lighting will be officially launched at Origin this October in Somerset House and she will also be represented this year at The British Glass Biennale and Tent London during The London Design Festival.

Marie says: “In a theatrical, domestic setting, these warped objects are suggesting a supernatural narrative”.
