Josh Latkin, a native of Pleasanton and a graduate of Livermore’s Granada High School, has been a Mendocino Coast resident since 1978, living in Albion for more than 30 years. 

Between 1973 and 1980 Josh began working with clay, learning and experimenting with various techniques. Beginning in 2011, when Josh had an opportunity to return to ceramics, he started to develop new methods and techniques to accomplish the construction of the large ceramic vessels he builds. 

At this time all of Josh’s pottery is high fired stoneware, with all phases of the work being done at his studio in Albion on the Mendocino coast. Currently Josh shows his work at four galleries in California and Oregon.  Free Admission. Bring a Friend.
