Joshua Primmer grew up in Vermont’s countryside off the grid on an organic vegetable farm absorbed in science fiction and fantasy. He first encountered clay during his undergraduate studies which began at Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts. Joshua completed his ceramics BFA in 2001after transferring to Maine College of Art. After a short stint as a production potter he worked out of his studio for six years and attended residencies at Medalta, Haystack, Domaine du Boisbuchet, and Watershed. This year Joshua graduated with an MFA in ceramics from Rhode Island School of Design and now lives in Rumford, RI with his wife and son. This past summer he was the Artist in Residence at Arch Contemporary in Tiverton, R.I. and an employee at Gleena in Pawtucket. Josh is currently the Visiting Artist at Albion College in Michigan and will then begin a long term residency at Worcester Center for Crafts in November.
