Readers of the Washington Glass School blog might remember the 2014 post when the Arizona Art Glass Alliance visited the Glass School - where Josh took photos using his signature cast glass cameras – the resulting photos were part of Josh’s artwork his piece Derealization, which was awarded first place in the Glass Art Society’s International Student Exhibition in December 2014.

Josh is orchestrating the cold construction fabrication of the new outdoor sculpture at the Glass Studio for the next couple of weeks – and then he will be off to become the Resident Artist at California’s Leichtag Foundation where he will teaching sculptural design.

If you are in and around the Glass School – make sure you say hey to Josh!
