About Nicolette

Nicolette Johnson is a ceramic artist based in Brisbane, Australia. Working primarily in stoneware using wheel throwing and hand-building techniques, Nicolette applies clean, modern lines and colours to re-imagined ancient forms.

With a background in photographic art and social documentary, Nicolette began studying ceramics in 2015 and is currently continuing her practice-led exploration into functional and sculptural ceramic artworks.

Nicolette hand-makes and fires each one of her pieces in small batches in her home studio.

As all works are handmade each one may differ slightly from the online images. Cups and mugs are all dishwasher safe, however I do suggest that they be hand-washed as they are delicate and this will ensure that they stay in great shape. Vases with decorative handles should be picked up by the belly of the pot, as the handles are not meant to support the vase’s full weight. If using a vase on a wooden surface, a cork coaster underneath the vase is recommended.

Please allow 2-3 business days to process your order before shipping. For any made-to-order items, please allow 6-8 weeks for production. All sales are final. In the event of any breakages during shipment, please get in touch within 2 days of receiving the piece with detailed photographs of the damage if possible.
