Nicole Aquillano’s Architectural Ceramics

|SEPTEMBER 06, 2013

Architecture is everywhere in Nicole Aquillano’s compelling functional ceramics: meticulous, towering bridges; intricate, imposing houses; densely packed neighborhoods; suggestive staircases. Precise, familiar details pop out of Aquillano’s beautifully sculpted mugs, bowls, and platters: bricks, roof tiles, symmetrical spans. The artist’s own glazes - dark and shadowy, with pops of yellow to convey the light of habitation - bring each piece’s urban vibe to life, evoking the constant movements, shifts, and changes of the city. Can’t get enough craft? Neither can we. Heck Yes Craft is a series of visual blog posts with a simple mission: to show off amazing work. Come back on Fridays for more.
