J. Davis Studio is a small pottery studio located in a land far far away – in Alpine, TX – the land of Big Bend National Park and the mysterious Marfa Lights. We are isolated by distance as well as the rugged topography of the Chihuahuan Desert. Your purchase helps create opportunities for local makers to make an income crafting useful and beautiful objects with their hands.
For Meaningful Spaces
Hand formed from natural earthy clay and fired using the graceful Raku process developed by a 16th century Japanese tea master seeking to honor the beauty in imperfection, innerSpirit Rattles have a one-of-a-kind iridescent surface. With their soothing sound and sumptuous texture, the deliberately imperfect palm-size American craft fits perfectly in the smallest of sacred spaces – a bedside table, on top of a desk, or nestled into a reading nook – ready to help quiet the chaos inside your head.
We are oh so very grateful for the American craft galleries and gift shops across the U.S. that carry our handcrafted goods. We’ve been in business for over 30 years, and feel blessed that shops like – the Renwick Gallery museum store at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Grace Cathedral gift shop in San Francisco, and the Ansel Adams Gallery in Yosemite National Park – have trusted us to deliver high quality handcrafted goods – in quantity – and on time.
