Inspired by Malcolm: A Passion for Shino

Sandy Spring museum

  • June 11-September 5

    • This exhibit honors the memory of Malcolm Davis, a DC-based potter whose inspired many and pushed the boundaries of a Japanese glaze--shino--creating a glaze that is widely used and named for Malcolm. A former university minister, he was an infectious speaker and warm soul. I had the pleasure of visiting him during his annual shows during the 1990s. I am one of 47 artists from across the country who are participating in this show. This is a special event, and I recommend you go if you are able to see the work of this diverse group of artists united both by their appreciation of Malcom and love of the shino glaze.
