JOHN  NICKERSON

“My background is in ceramics even though I began working in glass when I started a studio in Louisville, Colorado. Prior to that I worked in industry and taught ceramics, glass, drawing and design at the university level at schools in the United States and Canada. In 2007, I sold my glassmaking equipment to Western Carolina University...Since then, I have gotten re-involved with ceramics and, after shaking off thirty years of inactivity, have gotten to the point where I am feeling pretty confident and comfortable working with clay again.

JOHN NICKERSON Statement

“My background is in ceramics even though I began by working in glass when I started a studio in Louisville, Colorado. Prior to that I worked in industry and taught ceramics, glass, drawing and design at the university level at schools in the United States and Canada. In 2007, I sold my glassmaking equipment to Western Carolina University where it is being used in conjunction with other “fire arts” at a facility in Dillsboro, NC that is being fueled by methane gas being reclaimed from an old landfill. “Since then, I have gotten re-involved with ceramics and, after shaking off thirty years of inactivity, have gotten to the point where I am feeling pretty confident and comfortable working with clay again. I guess it doesn’t really matter what material I happen to be working with as long as I can be making something and feeling like I am doing something worthwhile. A colleague had a bumper sticker on the door of his studio that said, “Ceramic Art is not a trivial pursuit”. Hell, ANY art is not a trivial pursuit if you’re serious about it.” — John Nickerson

Nickerson received his BA degree from Montana State University and his MFA degree from Alfred University (NY). John currently works from his studio in North Carolina.
