Mark Davis was educated at Goddard College in Vermont. He began making jewelry in his teens and his dexterous metalwork is entirely self-taught. His initial forays into mobiles utilized the metals of his jewelry making: sterling silver, gold plating, and brass. The variety of styles and materials that Davis uses to build his mobiles has expanded dramatically over the years to create a complex and compelling body of work. In addition to moderate scale pieces of movement, with newfound color and grace, Davis also creates large scale public and private commission pieces. His works have been exhibited by Pucker Gallery since 1995 and are included in numerous private and public collections, including: the University of Chicago Comer Children’s Hospital; the Fuller Craft Museum, Brockton, MA; the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago; and the Rose Museum at Brandeis University in Waltham, MA.
