Display artist/maker:

Joanna Mallin Davis

Born: 1965, UK, Wales, Rhondda

Ceramicist. A graduate in ceramics from Cardiff 1986-1989, Joanna Mallin-Davies creates figurative ceramics and is particularily concerned with the female nude and the image of the horse. Initially she worked in stoneware, emulating bronze patena with her glazes. Since the late 1990s she has worked predominantly in cast bronze. Her horses have been inspired by the prehistoric cave paintings of Lascaux, as well as modern race horses. While living in Hong Kong (1991-1993), she became motivated by the simplicity of ancient Chinese and Japanese artifacts, as well as Buddhism and Taoism
