'Joseph's work is striking and dynamic. You sense the power of fragmentation, of material breaking down. Joseph’s monochrome palette gives the work a charred aesthetic, which is almost primitive. His ceramic forms are imbued with a sense of being in transition between states, and this is exciting.' - Su Washington

'There is a tension between the familiar and unknown, which is intriguing. There is exploration and risk taking in her work, which feels driven more by the process than an end product. As result, her work is fresh and unpredictable.' - Su Washington
