Joanna Manousis, The Golden Thread (Hex Decanters), US, 2019
The three decanters that comprise The Golden Thread are created in ‘core-cast’, gilded crystal. The original, decanter (from which molds were taken) is engraved with embellishments that are reminiscent of European cut crystal aperitif decanters. The negative space of a continual thread of knotted rope inside the decanters is gilded internally with 24-carat gold mirror after the decanters have been hand-polished.
Manousis has earned numerous international awards and nominations for her work, including a Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Nomination in 2017, The Margaret M. Mead Award through the Burchfield-Penney Arts Center in 2011, the Hans Godo Frabel Award for ‘Outstanding Achievement in Glass’ in 2010, and a Bombay Sapphire Award nomination for ‘Excellence in Glass’ in 2008. Manousis has created her work within major public museums and studio residency programs, including The Toledo Museum of Art, OH, The Museum of Art and Design, NY, The Corning Museum of Glass, NY, and Cité Internationale des Arts, France. Her work has been exhibited internationally at institutions and art fairs including The Glasmuseet Ebeltoft, Denmark, The British Glass Biennale, UK, Salon Art + Design, NY and FOG Art + Design, San Franscisco. Holding a Masters of Fine Arts in Sculpture from Alfred University, New York, and a First Class Honors Bachelor Degree in Fine Art from The University of Wolverhampton, England, Manousis has worked, studied and taught in Japan, the United Kingdom, the United States and Australia.
