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.
David Mola's studio is dedicated to design and manufacture objects made of glass, from windows and glass walls to jewellery, tableware or sculptures.
David also runs stained glass workshops.
I've been passionate about glass for many years, but actively for the last dozen or so. I have a particular interest in contemporary British glass and try to support artists by purchasing their work. I think glass is a wonderful - magical - medium that is sadly under-appreciated.
I have spent my career working with digital products and services, spanning roles at Lloyds TSB, SEGA, HMV, Sky and Dorling Kindersley. I currently own my own consultancy which helps publishers develop, make and market digital products.
I sit on the CGS Committee, providing a collector's perspective, and try to help with digital issues.
