Lowri Davies was brought up in Aberystwyth and educated at Carmarthen and Cardiff (BA Ceramics 1998-2001). Her Welsh heritage is a major source of inspiration in her work. Using both hand-built and slip-cast porcelain she makes jugs and cups whose white surface is a background for delicate and witty drawings of flowers, domestic objects and popular Welsh imagery. Lowri Davies – Porcelain cup on baseHer illustrations are affectionate references to the popularity of china displays on Welsh dressers and ceramic souvenirs.

The Welsh tea party showed ladies in Welsh costume sitting round the tea table and was an icon of Welsh identity that became popular in the early 20th century.
