Nick DeVries' Profile

About

I am a ceramic artist living and working in Brainerd Minnesota. I attended college at St Johns University, a sleepy little liberal arts university in central Minnesota. In 2016 I moved back to the area where I grew up to set up a home studio in Brainerd, MN.
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.
