The exploration of clay

Finch Bowls_Jo Davies 300dpi

Jo Davies in studio G6 creates wheel-thrown porcelain and ceramic vessels, vases and lighting. The full range of Jo Davies designs will be available to buy or order as well as a rare opportunity to buy samples and seconds directly from the studio.

“The exploration of clay is probably the most important aspect of my work. As I see it, an object I have made is best when it crystallises the liquidity of clay in the final ceramic.  The glazes I use are chosen because they enhance the sense of water and flow created in the object’s making on the throwing wheel.”
