Nick is a ceramic artist born in Nashville,Tennessee that received his B.F.A. from the Tennessee Tech Appalachian Center for Craft in 2019. Nick moved to San Marcos, TX at the beginning of 2020 to pursue a career in clay where he is currently a studio resident at Eye of the Dog Art Center. Both his sculptural and functional work revolve around combining contrasting familiar and culturally ingrained aesthetics to create a foreign and intriguing form. Nick’s forms are inspired by minimalist and modernist design principles that when juxtaposed with the weathered and aged surface effects from flashing slips and atmospheric firing techniques promote an archaic narrative and a retro-futuristic aesthetic.
