NC Mountains Pre-Conference Artist
Joshua Kuensting earned his MFA in Ceramics from Utah State University. He was a Studio Lab Coordinator at Winthrop University, a Core Fellow at Penland School of Craft and holds a BA in Psychology from the University of Missouri-Columbia. He has exhibited his work in numerous national shows. He is currently a Resident Artist at the Clay Studio of Missoula in Montana.
Drawing inspiration from the works of contemporary studio potters who were influenced by historic Asian ceramics, Joshua designs his pottery with an eye for what he calls “the landscape of the table.” Each utilitarian piece is functional and aesthetically pleasing alone; but taken together they create a space that enhances people's communal dining experience.
