Additionally, in the last five years he has published twenty-seven scholarly essays, reviews and catalogue essays. His work has been featured in four books including The Best of 500 Ceramics: Celebrating a Decade in Clay, Ceramic Sculptures and 500 Ceramic Sculptures: Contemporary Practice, Singular Works published by Lark Books, in the NCECA Biennial (Tampa Museum of Art) catalogue and has been reviewed in Ceramics Art and Perception, the Korean magazine Monthly Ceramic Art, and featured three times in Ceramics Monthly.

Welch began teaching at Princeton University in 2010, when he was appointed Lecturer in the Visual Arts Program. Before joining Princeton’s faculty, he was the Assistant Director of Greenwich House Pottery and promoted to Director in 2010 where he continues to work. Welch is currently serving on the Cultural Arts Commission for Hightstown, New Jersey, is Vice chair on the Board of Artaxis and serves on the Curatorial and Criticism Committee for the Nation Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts.
