Rhonda A. Davis a Ceramic Artist who lives in Flagstaff, Az. I received my MA in Ceramics in 1992 while still teaching High School Ceramics at Flagstaff High School. I continued to pursue interest in the Ceramic Arts by firing the wood kilns at NAU in the many summer months of 1990-2007, along with Don Bendel, Paula Rice, Don Reitz, and Yukio Yamamoto. I show my Sculptures and Ceramics in a variety of Galleries, in Northern Arizona, both in Flagstaff, Sedona, and Winslow. I made a decision to retire from the FUSD in 2012, after 27 years of service. So now I have time to work at both Ceramics and Sculpture. I also taught part time Ceramics for Coconino Community College and at NAU in the mid 1990’s.
“I create thrown curvilinear vessels that are high fired porcelain, and crystalline glazed. There is an oceanic feel to the bubble- like crystals, that grow sporadically throughout my forms. One might get the feeling of an Art Nouveau type of style. I love incorporating texture onto my clay by rolling it out onto leather, lace, and natural materials. My subjects are natural forms representing flowers, bones, animals, human faces etc. My masks are typically titled, and these sculptures are sometimes Raku fired or glazed with a high fired glaze called Crystalline.
