Mary Anne Davis

Mary Anne Davis of Chatham, New York, employs brilliant colors and local clay from the Hudson Valley to create durable porcelain dinnerware and modern art objects. Despite its delicate appearance, porcelain is more durable than earthenware or stoneware. Her porcelain is handmade using plaster slipcasts, which lend her objects their organic shape and subtle wave-like surface. In bone white or glazed with bright colors, she says each piece reflects the light like sun on water.
