About Josh Johnson Ceramics
Potting since the age of 16, it's only recently that I have focused on injecting more colour into my work. Producing my own glazes and using some commercial stains. The glazes are layered, using a variety of techniques including: dipping, sponging and brushing. Many pieces will have 4 or 5 different glazes, others up to 8. That said, I still enjoy using more muted tones reflecting the wonderful North Wales environment (where I was born and continue to live.)
Throwing, sculpting and hand building are used to create my work. Although I consider throwing to be my forte. Even after 40 years as a potter the challenge of using my hands & wheel to encourage the clay to take on the form I have envisaged, never loses its thrill. Nor does the simultaneous feeling of trepidation & excitement, as I open the lid of the kiln. Its Alchemy and always will be.
