Current Short-Term Resident Artist
Hometown: Jacksonville Beach, Florida
As a ceramic artist and potter, Josh Scott is interested in the specific function of pots and why someone is driven to employ a piece of pottery. Growing up around job sites, Josh became acquainted with the specific things certain tradesmen would carry, wear and use to complete the tasks set before them. He applies that same idea to his pots, aiming to make obvious what its intended use is, then accenting the form with nuanced surfaces. The end goal is to have created something that does its job well.
Born and raised in Jacksonville Beach, FL, Josh Scott grew up surfing and skating and working for his dad’s painting company. These expressive and process oriented hobbies influenced his decision in high school to pursue clay as a more serious career path. Josh is currently a graduate student at Utah State University and plans to graduate next year and apply for long term residencies as well as potential job offerings.
