British-born artist and designer Joanna Manousis, who lives and works in Toledo, Ohio, creates glass and mixed media sculptures that speak of human emotion, memory, and the passage of time. “I predominantly use glass in my sculpture to induce reflection, both physically and metaphorically, in the viewer,” Manousis said. “It is the transparency of glass, a solid state of atmosphere that simultaneously reveals yet barricades, that I find most compelling.”
She shared her experiences and inspirations during a lecture at The Toledo Museum of Art.
