The Clay Studio of Missoula is proud to present a solo exhibition featuring the ceramic works of current artist in residence Joshua Kuensting. Communal dining experiences throughout his life – from the family dining room table to traveling and eating with groups of strangers -  have influenced him to make tableware with a sense of touch and inherent usefulness. Joshua designs his pottery with an eye for what he calls “the landscape of the table;” each piece is functional and aesthetically pleasing alone, but taken together they create a space that is inviting, comfortable, and greater than the sum of its parts. By living with and using Joshua's work, design elements such as rhythm and proportion become apparent. Joshua hopes that these elements working together will positively enhance people's communal dining experience.

Joshua Kuensting earned his MFA in Ceramics from Utah State University. He was a Studio Lab Coordinator at Winthrop University in Rock Hill, South Carolina and a Core Fellow at Penland School of Craft in North Carolina.  He holds a BA in Psychology from the University of Missouri-Columbia.  Currently, Joshua is in his second year of residency at the Clay Studio of Missoula.

Joshua Kuensting: Current Explorations will be on display at the Clay Studio of Missoula from August 4-25, 2017, with an opening on Friday, August 4, from 5:30-9pm.  Gallery events are free and open to the public.
