ARTCRUSH 7. ISAAC NICHOLS

 

Hooray for pots that have boobs and faces on them! This edition of ARTCRUSH is all about cool guy Isaac Nichols, the master ceramicist who created our Rory, Adam and Girl Pot. We dragged him away from his Brooklyn studio, and his hand painted friends, to chat about his creations, taste in music and third drawer down favourites.

  1. What song/album do you have on repeat at the moment?

Bill Wilson, "rainy day resolution"-listen to it.

  1. If you had to describe your ceramics in 5 words, what would they be?

Fun to make and see.

  1. Could you take a photo of something and tell us a story about it?

 

When I was a student I made a series of these as part of a video installation, I think there were 11 in total, all different but with some similarities.  After I graduated I drove them home to my mothers house and hid them in the woods all around when she was gone.  I think it took her about a week before she bumped into one and started finding me out!  We joked about collecting them back for a retrospective some time down the road and how fun it would be display them again, complete with hornet and bird nests and moss etc.  

This is one of two that I ended up keeping for myself.  Mostly it reminds me to stay chill.

  1. Finally, which Third Drawer Down products do you wish were yours?  

David Shrigley Domino Set and the Ben Medansky VIA Cup!

THANKS ISAAC! Shop Isaac Nichols marvellous ceramic here, and quick before they all sell out again!
