Biography

Anne Nicol Artist Bio

I love to create whimsical one-of-a-kind fun, functional and ornate art pieces.  My background as a designer, calligrapher and painter informs my sense of colour, texture, shape and form.  Always exploring new and challenging decorative techniques to express my innate creativity. 

As a teacher and artist, pottery allows me an outlet to lose myself and be completely immersed into the creative process.  I find great pleasure in sharing my knowledge and igniting the imaginations of students. It is always rewarding to see the outcome of their own creations.

I am a studio potter & teacher at LOAM Clay Studio and an active volunteer with the Ottawa Guild of Potters, when not working with our family business Crossford Construction.

 

Artist Statement

As a ceramicist, I love to create whimsical one-of-a-kind fun, functional and ornate art pieces, with an emphasis on innovative surface design. My background as a designer, calligrapher and painter informs my sense of colour, texture and form while also lending a refined level of detail and finish to my work. I incorporate wheel, handbuilding and sculptural elements to create unique, elegant shapes. What I enjoy most about clay as a medium is that it allows me to constantly explore new and challenging decorative techniques to express my innate creativity.
