Nicolette Johnson is a ceramicist employing wheel-throwing, coiling, and sculpting techniques to produce vessels imbued with esoteric and surrealist motifs. Emblematic of her conceptual focus and skill, Johnson’s work is informed by a deep understanding of the myriad traditions, techniques, and symbols of vessel-making. With a background in photographic art and photojournalism, Johnson began working in ceramics in 2015 and is continuing her practice-led exploration into functional and sculptural ceramic vessels, hand-making and firing her works from her home studio.
