Joshua Pass has followed generation after generation in his family of being a master maker. Art was pivotal early in his life as he developed a strong desire to learn about making objects and visually communicating ideas through art. Born 1979 a native to Colorado, vast open spaces and dramatic plane changes are important and communicate where he is from. Joshua is an experienced Machinist, Master Goldsmith and an accomplished Sculptor. He earned a Bachelor of Fine Art degree at MSCD in 2008. Mark Cezark, Dennis Sohocki, and Vivian Beer are some of the most influential artists and mentors he has had the pleasure of working with while professionally developing. Joshua has work in sculpture parks, art on loan to various cities, installations in commercial settings and sculpture in private collections coast to coast.
