My aim is to encapsulate movements in nature
Joshua is a Senior Technician on BA(Hons) Contemporary Crafts at Falmouth University and part-time maker specialising in kiln formed glass.
Joshua makes sculptural objects and a range functional glassware. The making process and material language is fundamental to Joshua’s glass and mixed media assemblages. Joshua is interested in the junctions between materials and plays with methods of joining and combining materials. Form, material combinations, pattern and colour are inspired by a variety of sources including; architecture, contemporary design and post industrial landscapes.
My work is somewhat self-indulgent; I use my life and experience as the canvas upon which I work. With my creations, I speak a personal truth which in my opinion is what art should give to the world, it’s a luxury we cannot be without and I can only wish that the viewer will relate to the work with their own unique, personal viewpoint. The work I make is deeply rooted in symbolic historical and individual mythology. On occasion I delight in depicting a famous painting or poem, but as always with my own peculiar twist.
Why do I make art? Because I have to!
I live and work in Sheffield. My work is usually made using recycled float glass, often with wire inclusions. At some stage I expect I'll use colour more, but at the moment I like the simplicity of clear glass and wire - a bit like line drawings. Occasionally I use lead crystal because of its refractive qualities.
