joy and will

Husband and wife, Will and Joy share a studio and resources, but each create a body of work that reflects their own personal aesthetic.

Through the use of ┬áline, texture and depth Joy’s focus is on the interplay between repetition and variation. She is especially influenced by patterns she finds in nature. Her wheel thrown and altered stoneware and porcelain forms are fired in a wood and soda kiln.

Will fires his stoneware and porcelain forms in a wood and soda kiln that is fueled by discarded waste wood. His strong forms have carefully refined crisp edges and lines that contrast the irregular and dramatic markings indicative of wood firing.
