Artist designer

In her personal practice Joanne produces contemporary one-off sculptural pieces and three dimensional forms in glass that intimate and animate ideas, through the inherent qualities of the material. Joanne is represented in numerous UK galleries, and her work was sold in Bonham’s ‘Auction of Modern and Contemporary Glass’ in 2009, and has been sold to collectors in North America and Europe.

Details about work or recent projects

Joanne is currently in her fifth year of a part-time PhD in glass at Sunderland University. The research is an investigation into ‘Ariel’: the exploration of control of air within glass through the use of waterjet cutting and kiln forming, exploring air as a metaphor for thought, memory and the spoken word.
