the artist

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.

I am fascinated by the visual qualities of glass: the interplay between colour, light and translucency and also the sense of movement within thick bodies of glass. Inspired by natural, organic and modular forms, my sculptures arise from memories or feelings associated with some event or experience. The journey of each, from first sketches through to working on the piece itself, allows me to process the thoughts and feelings that were their initial inspiration.

I trained as an architectural glass artist in Bristol and at Central St. Martins. My work includes various innovative techniques using vibrant colour to create unique pieces for site-specific locations.

My background is in Fine Art and I apply this knowledge to all aspects of my creative work. I am particularly inspired by the use of colour and light in my kiln formed glass work.

I am an Edinburgh based sculptor working primarily in the mediums of glass and ceramics. I explore the simplicity of form in combination with pattern and surface texture to explore ideas relating to the human condition. I specialise in casting and engraving techniques. I have just completed my MFA (distinction) in Glass at Edinburgh College of Art and I have exhibited internationally.
