Davis, an expert on the use of digital imaging and screen printing in ceramics, recently traveled to the University of Alabama, where he was able to showcase several methods for transferring images to ceramic art and participated in individual critiques for some of the university’s BFA and MFA students.

From February 24-25, Davis will also be visiting Gonzaga University to give a presentation on his work, demonstrate his techniques for digital imaging on clay, and participate in individual discussions with BFA students.

Then, from March 17-18, Davis will travel to Kansas City, MO to attend the annual National Council on Education in Ceramics Conference, where he will be a presenter for Speedball Art Products, using the company’s products to demonstrate his techniques for screen-printed transfers on clay.
