Jo Davies Portrait by Layton Thompson

About Jo

Jo Davies specialises in wheel-thrown and hand-built porcelain, bringing years of experience and craftsmanship to every object made. The enjoyment of the making process and the continuing development of an evolving creativity are what drives her practice.  

Existing functional objects are often the starting point for Jo – a ladle, a rose bowl, a simple beaker – then her unique perspective evolves a design, using the exploration of the material qualities of clay as a vehicle for creativity, ending with objects that marry humour with sophistication. 

As a Royal College of Art graduate, and experienced studio-ceramics practitioner, Jo Davies has become a respected Designer-Maker. As a result her work is bought by collectors from around the world who value her ceramics for its quality and beauty. She is an award-winning practitioner who has taught at university level and exhibits internationally. 

Please note that only work designed by Jo Davies is made at the studio. The studio respectfully asks Designers and Artists seeking the manufacture of their ceramic items to consider other studios or factories.
