CHARLOTTE STREET FOUNDATION STUDIO RESIDENCY PROGRAM

Charlotte Street Foundation identifies the needs and fuels the evolution of an ever-changing multidisciplinary arts ecosystem, acting as its primary provocateur. We cultivate the contemporary, the exceptional, and the unexpected in the practice of artists working in and engaging with the Kansas City Art Community

Joey Watson

portraitshotJoey Watson 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.

I am a fresh graduate from the Kansas City Art Institute with my BFA in ceramics. I’m currently a Charlotte Street Foundation studio resident for the 2014-15 term and I was awarded a 2014 Regina Brown Undergraduate Fellowship last year through NCECA with which I traveled to NYC to research ancient and contemporary ritual implements. I’ve also studied at the International Ceramic Studio in Kecskemet, Hungary, as well as at Pilchuck Glass School in Stanwood, Washington, where my mold-making processes translated from ceramic to glass. After my session at Pilchuck I was nominated for the 2015 Corning Incorporated Award to attend a course at the Glass School in the summer of ’15.”
