Wheely good – scope schmick hand-spun ceramics from Nicolette Johnson
You know those people who seem to have the Midas effect of everything they touch turning to gold? That’s essentially Nicolette Johnson. The young artist has her finger in a bunch of creative pies but it’s her stunning hand-spun ceramic creations that we’re lusting over hard right now.
London-born and Brisbane-based Nicolette Johnson is a creative force of nature. Her impressive background in photographic art and social documentary were the perfect conduit for her foray into ceramics, providing a base for her to explore and hone her craft. After moving from a small inner-city apartment to a roomier Queenslander cottage, Nicolette has converted a spot under her house into a dedicated studio for all of her pottery making.
When you see her work, it’s hard to believe that Nicolette Johnson only took up the art of ceramics in 2015. Thanks to a combination of intuitive talent and fierce dedication to the craft, Nicolette has quickly blossomed into a maker to watch. In the two years that she has been making ceramics, the artist’s creations have evolved to incorporate elements of surprise and play. Stylistically, Nicolette’s pieces strike the perfect balance between ancient wonder and contemporary chic. Eye-catching symmetry, crisp silhouettes and sometimes bizarre handle shapes combine to create a style that is entirely her own. Nicolette’s pieces are all hand-spun and one-of-a-kind, so you can be assured that your piece is a unique creation.
If you could use a little hand-spun magic in your life, you can shop the full range and enquire about custom Nicolette Johnson Ceramics through the artist’s official website.
