Nicola’s porcelain work Is intuitive and organic. Each shape takes on its own irregular form as it is coiled up then carved to refine the shape and surface and maximise translucency. Colours and glaze are applied to the inside and the work fired in an electric kiln. Lustre glaze or colour washes are fired again later.
