Spring is in the Air! March 14, 2016 16:50

NCECA, ACC Atlanta, Smithsonian Craft Show...and your chance to be featured on my blog!


Hopefully I’m not jinxing us by saying this, but it looks like we made it through another winter! Phew!

I’ve been busy this winter making work for the National Ceramics Conference (NCECA) coming up in Kansas City this month! I’m excited to be showing some new work with Baltimore Clayworks at the Expo, with the Clay Studio for their 100 Cups Project at the Expo, and with Sherry Leedy Gallery for their Red-Hot Shop! If you have time, please stop by and say hello to my work for me :-) There’s some new blues mixed in, I’m excited to hear what you think!

After showing at the awesome American Craft Council (ACC) Show in Baltimore last month, I’m heading to Atlanta this weekend for the ACC show at the Cobb Galleria!  If you’re in the area, please stop by and say hello! The show is open this Friday (tomorrow!) through Sunday.


And finally, next month, I’m excited to announce that after running the Boston Marathon, I’ll be heading to DC the next day! I’m truly honored to be one of 120 artists showing at the Smithsonian Craft Show taking place at the National Building Museum April 21st - 25th! As soon as I’m back in the studio next week I’ll start using this gorgeous building as inspiration for some new custom work!


Speaking of custom work, I’m also excited to announce that the past month I’ve been working with students from Boston University’s PR lab to kick off some custom work blog features! Each post will highlight the unique stories behind the custom pieces customers (like you!) have commissioned me to make! If you’re interested in being featured, please just let me know! And thanks so much for your stories in advance :-) Hearing from you always makes my day!

Last but not least, please join me on Instagram! I would love to hear from you and see how my work exists in your life! Just snap a picture of one of my pieces in use or on display and tag me (@nicoleaquillano #nicoleaquillano). You will make my day (again!) and I’ll share my favorites for all to see!

As always, thank you for your continued support - I wouldn’t be here without you! I am so very grateful to each and everyone of you! And I hope to see you sometime this Spring!
