Assemblages by Nicolette Johnson
Alexander Zaxarov
Jul 2, 2020

Nicolette Johnson is a ceramic artist whose work explores symmetry, botanical motifs, and the importance of the artefact.

With a background in photographic art and social documentary, Nicolette began studying ceramics in 2015 and continues her practice-led exploration into functional and sculptural ceramic vessels in her Brisbane home studio, where she handmakes and fires each of her works.

Working in stoneware and employing wheel-throwing, coiling, and sculpting techniques, Nicolette applies a modern aesthetic to re-imagined ancient forms.

“I often find that when I let myself play in the studio — to create something that’s purely for my own enjoyment — that’s when a turning point can happen. There is an urgency to getting the ideas out of my head and into existence.”
