“I am fascinated by glass – by its ability to transform itself from a solid to a liquid and back to a solid again! For me it is the endless fascination of where science and art meet.” Jo uses kilnforming and flame-working techniques to make a wide variety of glass art. Her inspiration comes from travel, books, music, dance, and her family history. Jo was a finalist in the Rotorua Museum Art Awards 2019, and a finalist in the Miles Art Awards 2020. She has two apprenticeships in Medical Laboratory Technology, a BA in English Literature, and a Certificate in Graphic Design.
