The article highlights an exhibition held at the Fort Wayne Art Museum last fall, which Davis was a part of, entitled “Clay Prints: Image Surface and Narrative in Contemporary Ceramics.” The author discusses Davis’ use of wood-firing as a way to reinforce the metaphors and themes he chooses to portray in his work.
Speaking of exhibitions, Davis will be included in three upcoming major exhibitions of ceramic art: “Art of the Cup 2014” at the Ogden Museum of Southern Art at the University of New Orleans, “Souvenirs From the Future: A Survey of Contemporary Ceramics” at Lawrence Art Center in Lawrence, KS, and “CRAFTED: Ceramic Cups, Mugs & Tumblers” at the Society for Contemporary Craft in Pittsburgh.
