Nicola Tassie
£9,600
Viewpoint by Nicola Tassie -A composition piece made of 35 wheel thrown porcelain jugs, cups and bowls decorated with a black iron inlay and arranged into a cityscape of vessels. Unique piece.
A central question often posed by Nicola Tassie's work is whether her "objects" are to be used or to be admired. Viewpoint follows this line of questioning - an exceptional presentation of 35 precisely arranged and decorated porcelain vessels that explore the relation between function and form, the utilitarian and the aesthetic. Crafted with a precision and detail that is central to her practice, each vessel has been individually scored and then assembled into the group. Wide bellied jugs dominate the centre of the piece while smaller mugs and flat rimmed bowls inhabit the edges forming a tightly grouped cityscape.

The Maker Nicola Tassie Ceramicist - South East England

Nicola Tassie is a ceramicist whose work focuses on pushing the conceptual and material possibilities of domestic forms. While her work evokes a sense of familiarity within the viewer, her pieces, through construction and approach, elevate themselves beyond their humble function into the realm of sculpture. A founder member of Standpoint Studios, Nicola works from her space following the tradition of producing small batch domestic ware, which often form the basis of more abstract still life sets and installations.
