I believe in making as a vehicle for expression, for the articulation of thoughts that cannot be expressed through language.
About the Artist
Jo Davies has developed a refined artistic process to sculpt porcelain forms that blur the lines between art for art's sake & functionality. She creates pendant shades that emanate fluidity, energy and beauty. Her signature style can be seen in the exaggeration of undulating lines that naturally occur through wheel-throwing, to create a twist of translucency across the surface. The satin finish that Davies achieves through glazing and firing emphasises the soft glow that each pendant radiates, with or without the addition of the bulb's light. Each piece is uniquely created by Davies as an embodiment of her blended approach to working with porcelain: effortlessly working with the inherent qualities of the material whilst willing it into the forms that emerge from her hands and through her artistic intentions.
