Joseph’s ideas for his ceramic artwork are inspired by human forms and forms he’s found in nature. He works primarily in Raku, a 16th century Japanese firing technique. Joseph’s palate of glazes include vibrant copper and gold colors along with crackle glazes that produce an intriguing display of random vein patterns. Another distinguishing characteristic of his large vase forms are the abstract sculptural tops which he believes add personality and an individual character to each of his pieces.
