Joseph is an artist who works in many mediums from large sculptures to murals in oil. His focus has been on sculpture and ceramics such as glazed plates and bowls with colourful abstract arrangements. He lives and works in Sparta where he opened an art gallery called gathered.
He uses the shapes of nature in hand built earthenware, and also composes colourful floral designs. Harvesting indigenous surface clay from Elgin County, he explores the possibilities in ancient practices and sustainability.
‘Through explorations in technique, the artist finds their own voice in interpreting an art form. What is a concept, is brought forth to reality. There is seldom invention, instead there is a rediscovery of what has come before.
