Working with maps and airial views of the earth Josh created Elevations 1. A 24 piece Cosmic Cloud mural.  A multi fired process to create textures and organic glaze blending helped create this work. It is available for purchase. Contact Josh if you are interested.

Saturn Ring Swing 26" x 26"  is was created with the mindset of making an Orb but I decided to keep it in a square format. The rings are attached clay ribbons. Each strip on each tile is glazed with a different color. The color could be used only once per 8" x 8" tile. Using Marshmallow as the background I am experimenting with a new color palette.  If you are interested in a custom piece contact Josh to discuss ideas.

Ebb and Flow is a work of complex patterning and bas relief, twisting and turning throughout the 4' x 3' surface.

Art-Nouveau Quilt was inspired by wallpaper designs of the 1920s. While wallpaper patterns are generally more formal, these tiles are interconnected via richly colored glazes and 3D impressions to create an organic, overall design.  This work was commissioned to fit a specific niche in the client's home. If you are interested in a custom piece contact Josh to discuss ideas.

Simplicity of form with variation reveals the abstract nature of a glaze, allowing the viewer to see forms that resemble real images. Taking natural plants, like barley, and then enlarging the small plant form up to a 32" x 54" mural allows the viewer to really explore the beauty of the glazes.  Viewing the work from a distance further enhances the resulting graphic image. This piece is in a private collection. If you are interested in a custom piece contact Josh to discuss ideas.

Many Cosmic murals are commissions for specific spaces. Arched Swirl was made to fill the arched space over a fireplace. This piece was the inspiration for many more shaped Cosmic murals. If you are interested in a custom piece contact Josh to discuss ideas.

Space Fiddle was inspired by the work of Karl Blossfeldt, a German Photographer (1865-1932).  Botanics have wonderful patterns and forms to be captured in clay and glazes. If you are interested in a custom piece contact Josh to discuss ideas.
