Crystal Nykoluk Ceramics Art Show and Sale
"I build all my work using soft slabs of clay and also sometimes using molds. I really enjoy making abstract textures using clay, and I incorporate this element into all my work as well. No two objects I make are ever identical! I get much inspiration from simply observing the world as I go through it. The way frost plays out on a window, the grain of wood as it runs around knots in a tree, cracked soil, and broken rock. My work is wood-fired. To be able to wood-fire I depend on the generosity of friends who have wood-burning kilns. I also fire in a small electric kiln out at my studio in Anola Manitoba.
