Application Fee: $30
Exhibit: June 11, 2020–August 30, 2020

Sandy Spring Museum, along with co-sponsors Judith Davis, Baltimore Clayworks, District Clay and Montgomery Potters, will honor the life and work of Malcolm Davis (1937 – 2011) with juried exhibition Inspired by Malcolm: A Passion for Shino.

Malcolm Davis, a major contributor to 20th century ceramic world, experimented with Japanese Shino recipes until he “perfected” his Malcolm Davis Shino, a ground breaking development and a glaze now found in clay studios around the world.  That spirit of discovery is encouraged in this exhibit.

The exhibition of current Shino glazed work, juried by recognized Shino ceramist and clay educator, Matthew Hyleck, includes no restrictions on the type or size of work, how it is fired, or what Shino recipe is used.

Artists are asked to include five images of at least three ceramic pieces, along with a brief artist’s statement that specifically addresses their use of Shino in the particular work submitted.
