Nicola Briggs

I create handcrafted contemporary porcelain ceramics, decorating my pieces by layering underglazes, glazes and metallic lustres. My work is inspired by the patterns and textures in nature, the ever-changing light across the landscape and a muted colour palette from beautiful sunsets.

I photograph and sketch the landscape, these drawings are translated onto the clay like a canvas, after which each unique piece is created.
Contrasting torn rims and raw unglazed exteriors with decorated details and glossy glazes, finished with touches of real platinum or copper lustres, this gives my collection of work a modern rustic element inspired by Wabi-Sabi aesthetics.
