Joanne Mitchell
Artist designer

In her personal practice Joanne produces contemporary one-off sculptural pieces and three dimensional forms in glass that animate ideas through the inherent qualities of the material. Joanne is represented in numerous UK galleries. 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 undertaking a part-time practice-based PhD in glass at Sunderland University. The research is an investigation into the control of air entrapment as form and script within glass, through the innovative use of waterjet cutting and kiln forming float glass. Her sculptural glass explores air as a metaphor for thought, memory and the immaterial.
