J. Davis Studio

Handcrafted in the land of the peaceful Chihuhuan Desert, and the mysterious Marfa Lights


J. Davis Studio is a small ceramics studio in Alpine, Texas. Located in the vast and peaceful Chihuahuan Desert, close to Big Bend National Park, the area is isolated and rugged. His young daughters, Michaela and Hannah, digging for treasure with their tiny shovels and pails inspired artist, John Davis, to create a line of raku pottery that looked as if it belonged to a lost society.


The raku firing process originated in 16th century Japan, but the rustic look creates the essence of an ancient civilization, like an artifact unearthed from a primitive Indian camp ground around the Rio Grande riverbed.


Discovered in excavations in even the most remote places on earth, rattles are rich with cultural and historical stories. Handcrafted from inventive materials by resourceful peoples, these found early musical instruments represent humanity's shared heritage, and are a testament to the resilience of the human spirit.


Native Americans used rattles to ensure blessings upon their crops. Use your innerSpirit Rattle to help rattle some rain into your life, some rain out of your life, to rattle your worries away, or (if you insist) just to keep your papers from blowing astray.


Each innerSpirit Rattle design comes gift boxed with it's own story to help focus your thoughts on better things.
