Tea bowl with Shino glaze by Malcolm Davis

From the Mountain: Malcolm Davis and the Art of Shino

January 22—May 13, 2022

McGee Gallery

Malcolm Davis (1937–2011) was an internationally recognized ceramic artist who maintained a studio for more than 25 years in Upshur County, West Virginia. He discovered ceramics later in life and became a successful potter and teacher renowned for developing a Japanese-style glaze widely known as “Malcolm Davis Shino.” Featuring more than 70 objects on loan from private collections, this exhibition celebrates Davis’ artistic commitment to both beauty and function through a diversity of forms designed for everyday use.

Made possible with generous support from Judith Davis.
