Show Notes

This week, Mitchell Noah joins Nicole to talk about his creative practice, which stems from a longstanding study of glassblowing. Mitchell’s influences range from traditional venetian maestros, to experimental jazz, punk, and intermedia sculpture. Mitchell’s unique cross-disciplinary approach to glassblowing offers a case study in dedication to craft, and the value in pushing the boundaries of material, expertise, and collaboration.

Mitchell’s practice incorporates glass, objects, sculpture, image making and video. He received an InterMedia + Digital Art MFA from UMBC, and an MFA in Glassworking from BGSU in Ohio. His work has been shown in group exhibitions both nationally and internationally, particularly through artist-run and independent arts spaces. He has taught glassmaking at Bowling Green State University (OH) from 2013-2015, the University of Louisville’s Hite Art Institute (KY) in 2020, and currently at Corradetti Glassblowing Studio (Baltimore, MD) since 2016.

In 2019, Mitchell and his partner Chinen Aimi founded Spatial Oddity Studio as a way to share table objects and wares for everyday-use. Their glass and ceramic works are represented by the Made in Baltimore program, and were recently featured in American Craft Council’s 2021 Baltimore Craft Week.

You can find Mitchell’s glass objects online at Spatial Oddity Studio: spatialodditystudio.com
