Nick DeVries' Profile
I am a ceramic artist living and working in Minneapolis Minnesota. I attended college at St Johns University, a sleepy little liberal arts university in central Minnesota. Currently I maintain a studio in Northeast Minneapolis which is a thriving arts district home to many refurbished factory buildings, which now house artists and artisans of all kinds.
My work is primarily hand thrown porcelain which I alter, carve, and rasp. The changes I make to the pots gives them a natural texture suggesting bark, grass, or falling rain. This natural sense is contrasted with the hard, almost architectural edges to create a unified feel to my work.
