Eric Joseph's 2020 Gallery
Welcome to my gallery page! All works are original pieces which I create by hand from raw materials. These pieces are inspired from history and not meant to be historical reproductions. I do, however, strive to work within the artistic style of particular cultures at specific points in history.
All the drinking horns and mugs are functional and can be used. Knives are also properly heat treated and functional.
Cast cement sculptures can hang inside or outdoors. Cement pieces do not ship well and I encourage you to pick them up at my studio or you can find them displayed at River Street Flowerland, 1300 River Street, Kalamazoo, MI 49048.
There is much more to see in my studio. You are welcome to call or text for an appointment or visit my website. I can accept credit card payments or PayPal.

About Eric Joseph
History informs our lives and leads us directly to the here and now. My work is inspired from history. I have been interested in functional and decorative arts of the middle ages and late antiquity. The interaction between the functional object and aesthetic expression has changed since we entered an age of mass production. The disposable quality of the things around us has altered our lives and our relationship with everyday items. I believe that when a person creates something, whether it is purely utilitarian or a nonfunctional work of art, it is imbued with the spirit of that person. I hope to express myself in my work, as well as convey a sense of historical connection.
