Virtual – Malcolm Davis: How Did I End Up Here?

Thursday, June 17, 2021 at 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Join us to learn from the words of the late Malcolm Davis, the internationally renowned potter recognized for his creation of his own Shino glaze. During the program we will stream Davis’s closing lecture at the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA) from 2010, shortly before his unexpected passing the following year. In his talk, Davis shares his passion for pottery and examines the inner question of why someone devotes themselves to something – in this case, to clay. Opening statements for this program will be provided by Judy Davis, Malcolm’s wife and partner for over 50 years, and closing statements by Shoji Satake, Associate Professor of Ceramics, School of Art and Design, West Virginia University.

For accommodation requests, please contact the museum via email or at 301-774-0022.

Inspired by Malcolm: A Passion for Shino is sponsored in part by Judith Davis, Montgomery Potters, District Clay Center, Baltimore Clayworks, and The Clay Co-Op.
