Joe Welch is a ceramic artist from Tiverton, RI. He has an Associates in Fine Art from the Community College of Rhode Island and a BFA in Artisanry - Ceramics from UMass Dartmouth. His work revolves around faults in communication while using experimental ceramic materials as medium. Including systems and rituals, the exploration of interaction between living beings is expressed through gesture and boundary. Each piece of clay is built like pieces of a conversation: unique in design and intent with memory of rules and nuances.
