Joanne’s studio is based in the U.K.’s National Glass Centre, in Sunderland.

She is an artist and designer who creates innovative, contemporary glassware for galleries, public and private commissions, and freelance product design for the glass industry.

Her unique, recognisable style combines understated yet striking shapes and textures, examining the tactility and sensuality of the material.

She is continually developing new work at the cutting edge of glass design, whether working with individuals, companies and corporate clients to produce designs tailored to their specific requirements, or in the development of her personal practice.

“I intend my designs to embody an aesthetic that goes beyond function, to express the material’s inherent qualities and engage the senses. I like to explore the tactility of glass through wheel cutting, cold-working and polishing techniques. I often return to themes of movement, physical interaction and negative space in my work.” Joanne Mitchell
