Description:


Retired architect, chartered electrical engineer and once Enemalta Chairman, Joe's attraction for clay derives from a life of construction and design. Joe draws on his past expertise in building houses and churches, cupolas and factories, to give shape to his clay. Working with clay is in a way not very different from working on the drawing board. Under the capable tutorship of George Muscat, at the Malta College of Arts, Science and Technology, he quickly mastered the properties of clay and the mystique of glazing. Joe's work is quite varied. Some of his earlier art could be very humorous, with figures concocted out of clay and found material like cogs, rusty metal and bolts.
