The natural world and my experience with it are the greatest sources of influence with the work. This piece. Very much touched by the hand. Reminiscent of the sun, clouds, grasses and wind. Full of the energy that I bring to the work. Whatever name you call that thing that I’m chasing… This piece has it. #squarewedge #joshcopus #ceramics #woodfiredceramics #stonevessel

For the past 10 years or so, I’ve been trying to make work that has a certain feeling to it, work that has the feeling of ancient stones with lots of stories to tell. I’ve already come to terms that this will be a lifelong pursuit, but sometimes I get little glimpses of success. Reminders that I’m still on the right track, like this little gem from the spring firing. #rockvessel #woodfiredceramics #ceramics #joshcopus
