The Potter: Joshua Read

Joshua received his Fine Arts degree from Taylor University in 2011. While attending Taylor, he interned under a local potter in Downhill, Northern Ireland. Following that experience, he studied Art in Orvieto, Italy, just north of Rome.  In 2011, He moved out to Redding, California to attend the Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry. While attending, he met his lovely wife, Holly Read. Joshua has been throwing and making pots for over 12 years and has taught classes for both kids and adults.

In 2013, Linda Barker donated to Joshua 2 kilns, 2 wheels, tools, clay and raw materials in honor of her late husband and potter, Tim Barker. Without her generosity, this business would not exist today.
