Joanne Mitchell is an artist working on the final stages her PhD here at National Glass Centre at the University of Sunderland. For her doctorate Joanne has researched and 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 and air, exploring the concept of making visible the intangible, using air as a metaphor for thought, memory, presence and absence.
