Joshua Kosker is an artist currently living and working in western Pennsylvania. As a maker, he is interested in how objects shape experiences and, in turn, how actions imprint meaning on the material world. Josh’s research fuses traditional craft practices and unconventional processes—drawing from some of the most humble, discreet, and commonly found materials—to explore universal and sometimes private subject matters in daily life. His work has been exhibited in various group exhibitions both nationally and internationally, and has recently been included in several notable publications such as American Craft Magazine and Shifting Sites, the 2016 Metalsmith Magazine juried “Exhibition in Print.” A recipient of the Ethical Metalsmiths Emerging Artist Award in 2014, Kosker earned his MFA in Jewelry and Metalsmithing from Bowling Green State University and his BFA from Indiana University of Pennsylvania.
