Jo Davies


Location: Dalston

I am a ceramicist working from the Chocolate Factory Studios in Dalston. I specialise in wheel-thrown and constructed porcelain making vessels, lighting, tableware and one-off pieces. I graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2007 and have a full-time practice. I believe that the time I spend with my craft form deepens the knowledge I have, the breadth of my skills and informs my work.
