NIKKI MARIE- RESIDENCY DIRECTOR
Nikki has been working in clay since 2004. She likes sock puppets.
A graduate of Kent State University, Nikki Marie received her BFA in ceramics in May of 2010 under the tutelage of Kirk Mangus and Eva Kwong. She was then invited to study for two semesters at Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, MD before finding her way to a residency and eventual permanent position at Core Clay in Cincinnati, Ohio.
Her body of work is an exploration of hand built sculpture, wheel thrown pottery, acrylic paintings, and the strange offspring that the marriage of these three techniques produces. Nikki’s work is the physical manifestation of her subconscious, and is in no way drug induced.
