Graduated from Manchester Metropolitan University 2012 BA Hons Three Dimensional Design. Have just resigned from The World of Glass as an Assistant Glassblower due to commencing a MA in Glass at MMU.
I am mainly interested in installation and sculptural work. I use glass as a material to express ideas and narratives and I am interested in gaining skills in areas of new technology such as laser and waterjet cutting.
I presently live in the French Pyrenees, and naturally this imposing landscape is becoming an influence in my work, not only through subject, but also scale. Previously, in Dublin, I executed private/public commissions, personal pieces for gallery exhibition and competition where I was privileged to receive numerous awards.
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.
