Josie oscillates between making objects and facilitating projects that enable art to be made and experienced through diverse perspectives. Josie’s sculptural practice is informed by the built environment, technology and the social systems that manipulate human exchange. Speculative research based on interactions between people, technology and environment underscore the commonplace references in her work.
As a facilitator, Josie generates projects that aim to extend artistic frameworks for contemporary art practice. She is the co-founder and co-director of the Belmore Institute for Try-hard Ceramicists and Handicrafters, a residency program that supports both artists and people from non-arts fields to develop new cultural and/or material applications to ceramics.
Josie believes that diversity and universal access to the arts underpins innovation and broadens perceptions and possibilities for artistic forms.
