Ceramic artist Nicola Tassie initially studied painting at the Central School of Art but took up ceramics soon after completing her BA, establishing a studio in Hoxton in London in the 1980’s. She has a broad based practice which easily encompasses both wheel-thrown editions of functional pots - most especially jugs - as well as more sculptural works which explore the expanding precincts of ceramic form.
Her works have been exhibited in London at the London Art Fair; Collect: international art fair for modern craft and design; Fog design fair in San Francisco; Tremenheere Sculpture Park, Cornwall. She was selected for the Crafts Council’s, A Future Made programme and exhibited during Miami Design Week, 2016; and is now represented by Hostler Burrows Gallery in USA.
She has an on-going collaboration with the designer Margaret Howell, making limited editions tableware and designs for lighting.
She continues to work from her ceramics studio in east London.
