A product of the Chihuahuan Desert, Alpine, Texas, located in far west Texas, John Davis is widely know for his one-of-a-kind construction techniques. Inspired by the desert’s rugged terrain, subtle colors, and remarkable beauty, John’s work reflects the incredible hues of the mountain sunsets, the diverse vegetation, and the variability of this untamed region.

John’s virtuosity ranges from the elegant to the playful as he expresses himself through the medium of clay and color, and his “artisan concretization” keeps him in touch with reality as he harmonizes color, line, texture, and shading.
