It’s really neat to browse through Joanne’s portfolio and see all the different ways that glass can be created and manipulated using different visual approaches. The artist’s blown glass pieces have a delicate edge to them -- these pieces are mostly transparent glass, with abstract details of colour highlighting the clean, sleek look of the glass itself.

In the artist’s Props for Film and TV gallery, a small menagerie of blue-tinted unicorns showcases the sculptural possibilities of flameworked glass. The artist’s Marbles and Beads are smaller-scale examples, microcosms of layering, colouring, and sculpting that look otherworldly in their way.
