Mike Davis was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. He currently lives in Cleveland, Ohio and creates at his studio in Midtown. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Cleveland Institute of Art in May of 2012. Davis uses many small pieces of colored glass, called murrini, that are applied to the glass while hot. Those pieces of glass are combined to create patterns that Davis uses in one of his designed vessel series.
In 2014, Davis was nominated as a finalist for the Niche Awards – a nationally recognized publication of the outstanding achievement of American Craft.
