josh floyd's Profile

About

I am an artist who was chosen to use clay as my medium of expression. I concentrate on functional pots and strive to find a balance between ease of use(functional ergonomics) and creativity in form and decoration(artistic expression). I intend for the work to be used and ejoyed in the daily rituals of life, and hope the pots find their way into the lives of pottery lovers everywhere!
I use high fire stoneware and porcelain and fire a kiln that uses wood as the fuel. I salt glaze most of my work, and enjoy the subtle differences that come from flame and ash deposits. My pots have evolved over the years and encompass the influences of artists that I have worked with. Much of the inspiration for my work comes from English country ware, German Salt glazed pottery and Early American pottery from the 18th and 19th century.
