Isgard Moje-Wohlgemuth

1941

Isgard Moje-Wohlgemuth is especially known for objects that exhibit highly refined decorations, from extremely small vases (height: 5 cm) to great 75-cm-tall containers, some of which are paired together as a single work.
Further, she creates autonomous forms, such as her ‘roll-offs’, where glass plates appear to roll out from a cylindrical form.
Her work exhibits a clear preference for precious metals. The use of magnificent iridescent colours as well as gold are prominent features of her work.
Colours are introduced one at a time to glass cylinders and then fired. In turn, the forms are also often etched or sandblasted. The result: intriguing objects, at once delicate and imposing.

Isgard Moje-Wohlgemuth received her professional training at the Staatliche Glasfachschule ( State Technical School for the Glass Manufacture) at Hadamar. She has been employing traditional glass-painting techniques since the very start of her education. Following completion of her studies, she worked for a short time in the glass industry, whilst also doing restoration work.
At the same time, she experimented with techniques for decorating glass in the manner which she envisaged.
Isgard Moje-Wohlgemuth has carried out numerous architectural commissions, and is the recipient of several prestigious awards. Her work forms part of the collections of both museums and private collectors all over the world.
