Featuring: Kiya Nicole
Join Portside Art Center for this upcoming virtual artist talk featuring ceramics and sculpture artist Kiya Nicole!
Kiya Nicole is a visual artist focused on ceramic sculpture and functional works. She is the artist behind Root and Rocks ceramics. Her process draws from and relies on sensation, memory by exploring interconnected relationships between the body and forces in nature. By highlighting intricacies of the natural world that she feels are often overlooked, she hopes to draw attention to the connection and impact we have on our surroundings, and the resources within oneself to create change.
Root and Rocks infuses nature’s rhythm into handmade ceramic goods. From functional items we use everyday to fine art vessels and abstract sculpture, interconnected forms are highlighted in the work. Each piece is made with the hope that it will bring a sense of beauty, peace, and reflection.
