Meghan Wagg (Edmonton, AB) received her Bachelor of Fine Arts, majoring in Jewellery Design and Metalsmithing at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax. Her present work consists of tableware and jewellery. Her designs focus around simple, smooth geometric shapes and apply ideas of function and tension within the shape to create useful and appealing objects.
“My work consisted mainly of tableware when I first began but has grown immensely since then. I started working smaller, incorporating elements of my larger pieces into my jewellery. Through feedback from my involvement with the ACC, exhibitions and sales in the shop, my work has evolved into its present state.”
Working mainly in silver, utilizing a variety of fabrication techniques, Meghan enjoys the solidity of fluidity that metal can provide. Meghan incorporates other materials to her metal work such as Delrin, a hard plastic which Meghan shapes and dyes by hand to create contrasting surfaces and add elements of colour to her work.
“Symmetry, cleanliness, organization, and practicality are elements that continuously show through in my designs. They are qualities that I’ve grown up with and continue to focus all aspects of my life around me, including my work.”
