Judith Davies’ pale and delicate ceramics, hand-coiled from porcelain, have an ethereal quality. The pieces take many days to complete, after each piece is built the surface is burnished and the work carefully dried before firing.

The work is fired in a saggar, surrounded by oxides, salt and seaweed. This way of firing is random in its effects, fuming the surface and producing subtle markings and flashes of colour, each piece is unique and unrepeatable and gains its own character.

Current methods of working: Public Commission, Private Commission, Collaboration, Project Management, Community work, Education projects, Training, Others
