Back to Kent for More Joy

Updated: Jan 30

Joy's kiln, nestled in the woods at the edge of a natural reserve surrounded by lakes, crossed by the Housatonic River and the Appalachian Trail, will again be our focal point.


Most recent trailer from The Art of Joy Brown’s timeline


After a hiatus of several weeks dedicated exclusively to The Italian Factor, and with a helping hand from a very generous group of donors, we’re now back editing The Art of Joy Brown. Alternating between films allows me to gain distance and perspective, much like other artists in different mediums.


I have visited Joy Brown's studio in Connecticut multiple times, spending weeks filming around the kiln where a large group of artists Joy likes to call The Family gathers annually for a new round of firing. Additionally, I've traveled to Japan to meet and film with Shigeyoshi Morioka, Joy's mentor and friend, and to the southern isles north of Okinawa, where Joy recently installed a monumental ceramic mural.


Next weekend, I will once again drive to Kent. The cold January will be a good visual addition to the documentary, and the possibility of mild snow or even a blizzard could add a unique beauty by contrast to a film mostly about fire and firing.

This presents an extraordinary opportunity to prepare for the next leg of the journey, which will take Joy and me to Shanghai. Stay tuned for visual updates from the road.
