    Terry Davies began his apprenticeship in the late 70s in the English laboratory that followed the tradition of Bernard Leach. The transition from a turner to a craftsman-artist required many years of apprenticeship and many training trips around the world. They brought him from the village of potters in La Borne, France, where he learned cooking with a wood oven, to Australia, New Zealand, Southeast Asia, Japan, Latin America and finally to Italy, in Tuscany, where lives and works.

    Davies' production is identified above all with the technique he developed many years ago in England. "Elephant skin" are mostly lathed objects with a complex process of fracturing the external surface so as to create natural cracks that look like sunburnt earth.

    Davies Terry

    Ceramic artist Terry Davies was born in the United Kingdom. Following an extensive training in the historic Leach tradition, he travelled widely on a voyage of discovery and study, leading him to some of the world’s greatest ceramic centres. He settled in Tuscany 20 years ago where his pottery studio is located on a hilltop overlooking Certaldo.
    His experimental approach to texture and form has won him many international awards and exhibitions, with his ‘pelle d’elefante’ technique receiving much praise. The look and feel of this distinctive finish is that of cracked or burnt earth. Davies shares his passion for ceramic art with the public in the form of large-scale experimental kiln firings often using recycled materials, such as glass bottles and paper, taking place in piazzas around Italy and drawing crowds in the thousands to the main squares of Lucca, San Gimignano, Firenze and Faenza. These unique cultural events are an alchemical fusion of earth, water, fire and air.
