RISD Alum Jill Henrietta Davis
Degree MFA Glass
Year 1999

Aiming for a “fierce vitality” in her work, Jill Henrietta Davis creates functional sculpture that embodies her “love for the remarkable optic and tactile qualities inherent to glass.” She began her glass career at the New York Experimental Glass Workshop while still an undergraduate at Parsons School of Design. Davis spent the next five years in Seattle, pursuing her vision of creating furniture incorporating handmade glass. There she had four solo and several group shows, was active at the Pilchuck Glass School and the Pratt Fine Arts Center, and earned the Jon and Mary Shirley Glass Scholarship for Emerging Artists. Since RISD drew her east again in the late 1990s, Davis has lived and worked in Providence.
