Joey Watson is one our Residents and teachers at KC Clay Guild, in Kansas City. He (paraphrased) 'is a ceramic artist who uses tools such as 3D rendering software, CNC milling, 3D printing, computerized gas kilns, and an electroencephalograph (EEG) to cultivate his work.'
“Born and raised in the arid Sonoran Desert I became engaged early on in the visual splendor of the region. Mountains carved through time by erosion and the unique plant and animal life all influenced my early mind."
'He graduated from the Kansas City Art Institute with a BFA in ceramics and was a Charlotte Street Foundation studio resident as well as a Regina Brown Undergraduate Fellow. He's also studied at the International Ceramic Studio in Kecskemet, Hungary, and the Pilchuck Glass School in Washington state where his mold-making processes translated from ceramic to glass. Joey was also nominated for the 2015 Corning Incorporated Award to attend a course at the Glass School.'
