Nicola Briggs creates handcrafted contemporary ceramics in porcelain, decorating each piece by layering underglazes, glazes and metallic lustres. Her beautiful work has an air of simple elegance which is inspired by the textures found within nature and the ever-changing light across the landscape Nicola uses this inspiration in combination with a muted colour palette from beautiful sunsets.
Nicola photographs and sketches the landscapes and these drawings are translated onto the clay like a canvas and then the piece is formed by hand using varying hand building techniques and Mishima inlay work. Contrasting torn rims and raw unglazed exteriors with decorated details and glossy glazes finished with touches of real platinum lustre, gives Nicola’s collection of work a modern rustic element, inspired by the Wabi-Sabi aesthetics.
