Biography

davies_photoI am largely self-taught as a potter. I first started to throw at a small studio in Kingston, Ontario. A career as a conference interpreter and the responsibilities of being a parent put all thoughts of pottery far from my mind until twenty years later when we moved from Ottawa to Brussels, where I found myself walking distance from a workshop with keen potters willing to help me find my own style with clay. I returned to Ottawa in September 2016, and am a member of the Gladstone Clayworks Coop.

Artist Statement

davies_logoMy work is based on simple, practical shapes - a bowl for fruit, a plate for food, a vase for flowers, while at the same time I strive for lightness and elegance of form. I layer lines of contrasting colour to fuse with the shape and catch the eye.
