Hi, my name is Nicky Kriara. I'm a sculptor and painter with a BFA in Ceramics. I started NIKO as a full-time business in August 2016 after working for years in the stop-motion film industry. I use a combination of slip-casting, carving, slab, and wheel-thrown techniques to create functional ceramic ware. I specialize in graphic and decorative planters for indoor/outdoor gardening. I LOVE working large-scale. I'm open to custom orders and collaborations. Past projects have included kitchen tiles, slip-cast vases for weddings, plates for restaurants, and sculptures for hotel lobbies. Glazes are food-safe and dishwasher-safe.
