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 transferred to Maine College of Art and received his BFA in 2001. 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. Josh received his MFA in ceramics from Rhode Island School of Design in 2016. He is now the Artist in Residence at Arch Contemporary Ceramics in Tiverton, RI and an employee at Gleena in Pawtucket, RI. He lives in Rumford, RI with his wife and son. In September he will be the Visiting Artist at Albion College in Michigan and will then begin a long term residency at Worcester Center for Crafts in November.
