Born in Louisville, Kentucky, Mitchell Noah is an artist and educator currently based in Okinawa, Japan.

Mitchell’s practice incorporates glass, objects, sculpture, image making and video. He first started glassblowing at the University of Louisville’s Hite Art Institue, earning a BFA in Glass in 2011. He continued on to receive an MFA in Glassworking from BGSU in Ohio in 2014 and an InterMedia + Digital Art MFA from UMBC in 2018. 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 worked as an instructor and gaffer at Corradetti Glassblowing Studio (Baltimore, MD) from 2016-2023.

Mitchell currently works as a production gaffer and resident artist at Ryukyu Glass Works Umikaze in Okinawa.

In 2019, Mitchell and his partner Chinen Aimi formed Spatial Oddity Studio as a way to share one-of-a-kind and small batch objects and wares for everyday-use and display. 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 Marketplace.

Mitchell also exhibits his glass work independently, in recent exhibitions including CraftForms 2021 at the Wayne Art Center (PA); a 2022 glass exhibition to glorify the cup titled Sip at the Janice Charach Gallery (Detroit, MI); and in the two-person exhibition Heat Rash, part of the 2022 Emerge Baltimore series at the Bromo Selzter Arts Tower (MD).
