|In creating art my goal is to move the viewer and/or user of my work. I intend to abstractly evoke emotions of peace, monumentality, and beauty with my work. I want my work to possess an inspirational presence. I am attempting to mimic the emotions triggered in me by my sources of inspiration. My muses reside in nature, old New England mills, and art, and I immerse myself in as much as possible.|
In the past year, Joshua has focused his efforts on experimenting with different stoneware and porcelain bodies. Excited by some new minimalist designs for drinking and pouring vessels, he is also experimenting with incorporating his work into living spaces and exploring a more politically overt series of sculpture. He is experimenting with designing work for use in architectural spaces, from wall mounted art work, to flower and light sconces. Always passionate about the national and world state of affairs, Joshua has been artistically inspired to comment on the ridiculous trend in current events. Hard times are good for artistic expression.
Joshua lives in downtown Bennington, Vermont with his wife Rebecca, their son Miles, and their two cats Ooba and Rodney. Joshua received his BFA from Maine College of Art in 2001.
