Born in upstate New York and raised in the Hudson Valley, Nicholas grew up playing in the woods and building forts out of found materials. MTV and trips to the MoMA piqued his interest in pop culture. After sculpting clay creations in summer art classes, Nicholas looked to the arts to explore the overlap of design and nature.
Years of study at the potter’s wheel led Nicholas on a journey of apprenticing and working under master potters, commercial product development, and teaching ceramic arts.
Today, Nicholas utilizes time-tested production techniques to make collections of whimsically decorated tableware and elegant accessories. Each item is made using a combination of slip casting, wheel throwing, and handbuilding techniques in his Brooklyn, NY studio.
