Here I'm getting going with a mid-scale Twist Vase. The key to a lot of my work is to get the shape of the piece in control in the early stages of the process prior to creating the fluidity inherent in it. Porcelain has a particle structure that is very fine, which makes the clay warp more easily at every stage but makes for a beautiful movement in its shape if you get it right. My show at the Contemporary Ceramics Centre continues until 10 March #ceramics #clay #porcelain #white #wheelthrowing #pottery #potter #ceramicists #pottersofinstagram #potterywheel #pottersinaction #vase #vessel #jodavies #wheelthrown #thrown #ceramiques at The Chocolate Factory N16

Well, it's Chinese New Year today so I had to post these. Having undertaken a wonderful collaboration with a Chinese artist about 18 months ago I now have a small understanding of the importance of red in Chinese culture. Happy Chinese New Year all! A few of these at the Contemporary Ceramics Centre @ceramicscentre in London #chinesenewyear #chinesenewyear2018 #porcelain #red #blackandred #nofilter #ceramics #craft #finecraft #clay #vase #vessel #vessels #pottersofinstagram #London #londonmakers #ceramicist #potter #pottery #wheelthrown #turning at Contemporary Ceramics

This Group of Three Tall Vessels will be at Porcelain3 at the Contemporary Ceramics Centre, opening this Wednesday night and on show until 10 March. The tallest stands at approximately 35cm high, they constitute the first of group-pieces that will remain together. I'm really looking forward to showing them for the first time along with other new work. #ceramic #ceramics #porcelain #pottery #pottersofinstagram #clay #wheelthrowing #whitevase #flowervase #vessel #finecraft #londonmakers #craft #keramik #ceramique #white #potter at Contemporary Ceramics

So we got the macro lens out last week @booth_studio so we could really get a good look at that crystalline formation across the surface of my black glaze. I really love the clarity of understanding that this image gives me. This small gilded vessel will be in my show @ceramicscentre opening next week on the 15th Feb #porcelain #porcelainpotter #ceramics #clay #pottery #pottersofinstagram #vessels #craft #maker #londonmaker #contemporary #design #artevent #red #black #wheel #wheelthrowing #turning #pottersinaction #nofilter at Jo Davies Ceramics

Glazed but pre-kiln fired - Twist Vases with Red Bases earlier this week looking a lot paler than they do now. Ceramics is always a leap of faith, you have to just trust that you know your glaze, you've tested your clay and you know your equipment. They're looking very red with crystalline black now and are at the Contemporary Ceramics Centre @ceramicscentre waiting to be arranged into position by the wonderful curators there before our opening night on 14 Feb for Porcelain3 #porcelain #porcelainpotter #ceramics #clay #pottery #pottersofinstagram #vessels #craft #maker #londonmaker #contemporary #design #artevent #red #black #wheel #wheelthrowing #turning #pottersi at The Chocolate Factory N16

Here's a sneak peek detail of one of the Vessels going into the show Porcelain3 @ceramicscentre . This glaze is one I developed a few years ago and continue to use, its variability is incredible. The manganese dioxide is part of what creates tiny crystals on the surface and, depending on position in the kiln, thickness of the glaze on application and porosity of the ceramic, the glaze will be more or less matt. I have this controlled to within a small range of possibilities but there is still a sense of peril when loading a glaze kiln. Ceramics isn't always therapeutic.... #ceramics #glaze #porcelain #clay #wheelthrowing #vessel #black #pottersofinstagram #craft #London #finecraft #londonmaker #pottery #potter #turning #potterywheel #vases #flowervase #blackglaze #appliedarts at Jo Davies Ceramics

Final firings happening this week ready for delivery to @ceramicscentre for our Show Porcelain3. I'll be exhibiting some new work for the first time but you'll have to go to the show to see it as some of it will be going straight from kiln to gallery. Not the most relaxing way to work but sometimes that's what happens when you're trying to push your creative boundaries. Porcelain3 runs from 15th Feb with the opening night on 14th, final day is10 March. Porcelain from the amazing @klugceramics and brilliant Anja Lubach will also be on show. #ceramics #porcelain #porcelainpotter #pottersofinstagram #clay #wheelthrown #black #blackvase #vases #flowervase #vessel #vessels #craft #maker #finecraft #London #artevents #bloomsbury #whatson #jodavies at Contemporary Ceramics

Three of my Loop Vessels inside the @londonartfair VIP Lounge yesterday as part of @futureicons_ showcase. Please go and take a look if you're in Angel, Islington over the next few days, open til Sunday. This shot was taken just before a great evening ensued last night - after a wonderful gin tasting session of @caorunngin (fabulous) with @taniajohnsondesign , @pipetdesign and the indefatigable Louisa Pacifico of Future Icons. Thanks everyone for a wonderful evening! #exhibition #artevent #ceramics #design #designers #vessels #whitevessels #urns #contemporary #contemporaryart #contemporarydesign #London #londonart #artevent #porcelain #finecraft #fineart #art #pottersofinstagram at Business Design Centre

Happy New Year all! This is where I spent mine. We're in Ireland near Sligo and it's beautiful. Back in the studio in a couple of days and, despite having had a great Christmas, I am keen to get back to it. I've got one of the busiest January's ever this year with a commission to get underway, an exhibition @ceramicscentre in Feb and several teaching engagements, starting with @westdeancollege this coming weekend. #2018 #2018goals #ceramics #clay #porcelain #wheelthrown #wheelthrowing #pottery #pottery #wheelworkshop #classes #ceramicsexhibition #finecraft #craft #appliedarts #arts #vessels #workshops #handmade #handmadeinlondon #Londonmakers #craftsperson #craftsmen #craftswomen #exhibition #commission #learning at Sligo, Ireland

It's this kind of glaze finish that I'm always searching for in my work - it has depth, texture and is, frankly, beautiful. #glaze #porcelain #clay #ceramics #making #maker #potter #pottery #potters #pottersofinstagram #surface #white #whitevessel #whitevase #monochrome #crackleglaze #crackle #craft #design #finecraft #finecrafts at The Chocolate Factory N16
