About this project

Alongside her practice Joanne is researching glass at The University of Sunderland, for her PhD, due for completion late 2015. The research has developed pioneering kiln forming techniques to create forms and images trapped as air bubbles, suspended within a glass space.

In her recent sculptural work Joanne examines how immaterial elements can be exposed or preserved through glass, exploring the concept of making visible the intangible, using air as a metaphor for thought, memory and absence.
