Leaving her cozy retail spot on Fort Worth’s Magnolia Avenue was bittersweet for potter Kendall Davis, but her new studio is now mere steps away from her home. Actually, it’s downstairs, as Davis has turned part of her house into a showroom/work studio with space for an apprentice as well. She and her husband opened up the first-floor room’s ceiling to its original shiplap and wood beams and painted them white. Two large windows allow for lots of natural light. “Growing up, we lived over my mother’s boutique in Granbury, so it just feels right,” says Davis, who’s been making ceramics for about 18 years. Now, there’s more display room for Davis’ handcrafted tableware, serving pieces and decorative items such as vases and pots. (The custom-built shelves come from David Brown of BWC Furniture.) The showroom is open to the public noon to 4 p.m. the first Friday and Saturday of each month and by appointment. Davis also sells her wares once a month at The Clearfork Farmers Market in Fort Worth and is providing the new Hotel Drover with tableware, serving pieces and vases for its in-house restaurant.
