  • Chasse Davidson began her journey with clay 28 years ago as she studied ceramics in high school and college and went on establishing her home studio.  She began teaching ceramics in 2011 at Toledo Clayworks where she assumed management in 2015.  Today, Chasse once again works in her home studio in Newport and continues to encourage the growth of the coastal clay community through her involvement with the Visual Art Center’s new ceramic studio.
