London-born, Brisbane-based ceramic artist Nicolette Johnson creates work that explores symmetry, botanical motifs, and the importance of the artefact. With a background in photographic art and social documentary, Nicolette began studying ceramics in 2015 and continues her practice-led exploration into functional and sculptural ceramic vessels in her Brisbane home studio, where she handmakes and fires each of her works.

Working in stoneware and employing wheel-throwing, coiling, and sculpting techniques, Nicolette applies a modern aesthetic to re-imagined ancient forms. Her work is included in public collections at the National Gallery of Victoria and the Museum of Brisbane and in private collections throughout Australia.

Nicolette Johnson in the Australian Ceramics Triennale

Nicolette Johnson's Topiaries series of ceramic vessels are on display as part of MANIFEST for the Australian Ceramics Triennale. The exhibition presents a diverse collection of work representing the art, craft, and design of contemporary Australian ceramics.

MANIFEST opens on 1 May and runs until 4 May 2019 at Princes Wharf One in Hobart.


Nicolette Johnson at the NGV

Nicolette Johnson's Black studded vase, 2018, is currently on display at the National Gallery of Victoria in Designing WomenDesigning Women highlights the ongoing role of female designers as a dynamic and critical force in shaping contemporary design culture. The exhibition draws from the NGV Collection to showcase over 50 significant works of design – across diverse creative fields – all united by their female authorship.

Black studded vase was first exhibited in Artefacts, curated by Guy Keulemans, as part of the 2018 Melbourne Design Week exhibition program. The work is part of an ongoing exploration of forms inspired by multiple converging themes, including symmetry in the natural world, historical pottery, and the shapes and patterns found in ancient armours. Protrusions added to the work reference organic matter like spines on cacti, radiating flower petals, and insect antennae. They also borrow from surface decorations found on ancient vessels and garments, such as the decorative spikes on Minoan ritual jugs and the repeating grid patterns of East Asian armour. 

Designing Women runs until 29 September 2019.
