J. Davis Studio is a family owned ceramics studio in Alpine, Texas. Located in the vast and peaceful Chihuahuan Desert, close to Big Bend National Park, the area is isolated and rugged.
There is arguably a unique energy springing from this uncluttered and far flung part of the world. The desolate mountainous landscape has a curious way of reinforcing faith, dredging up an unknown inner strength, and sparking a deep appreciation for even the smallest things in life.
This feeling is a gift that may be (just maybe) captured inside the hard shell of each handmade innerSpirit Rattle. Perhaps it’s an aura that seeps in, or a sticky essence picked up while being made one-by-one in a land once roamed by Native Americans and the African American Buffalo soldiers.
If none of the above can convince you of the energy of the Big Bend area, consider the mysterious orbs of light that skip and dance along the plains of Alpine’s neighbor, Marfa, Texas. For over a hundred years, try as they might, scientists still can’t explain them.
