Joseph's Style

Joseph is inspired by works with a strong sense of line and mark making such as Van Gogh’s drawings. His sculptural influences are Picasso, Gaudier-Brzeska, Rodin, Degas and Calder. He says ‘A theme that I look for in sculpture is humour and playfulness, something that Picasso masters wonderfully.’

When working on his sculptures he uses a German clay called Sculpting Marl which is particularly strong and resistant to cracking and warping. He also uses porcelain, which has a beautiful milky white finish. Whatever type of clay he uses he exclusively handbuilds and models his work, and generally decorates all his work unfired, then glazes and fires only once achieving his desired vibrant finish.

Harlequins & Heifers

"This new collection of ceramic work draws on a wide range of influences, from the figurative sculptures of Daumier and Gaudier-Brzeska, to the paintings of Picasso and Ancient Greek ceramics in the British Museum. The pieces are made from porcelain, and also a specially sourced German Sculpting Marl Clay, which is designed to withstand high temperatures, as well as the awkward sculptural contortions demanded of it.

The inspirations of the collection are multiple, encompassing the playful harlequin themes from the paintings of Picasso, as well as animal and fish themes, partly inspired by the oversized cow paintings from the Compton Verney Collection. The work aims to be joyful and humorous." - Joseph Dupré, Harlequins & Heifers
