CRAFTING A DIFFERENCE VIRTUAL VISIT ON NOW!

Six Piece Framed Installation by Nicholas Lees/ Cavaliero Finn Gallery

At first glance Nicholas’ fine porcelain sculptures appear so perfect it is almost impossible to believe that they are made by hand. However, each of his sculptures are started as massively thick-walled vessels hand thrown on the potter’s wheel. The vessels are then taken to a lathe when the clay is leather hard and are carefully turned to perfection by hand – a process that involves huge risks and requires an enormous amount of patience, not to mention skill. Talking about his work Nicholas said: “In both my drawing and ceramic work I interrogate the relationship between what is solid and material and what is numinous and ephemeral. The works explore the uncertainty that rests within boundaries and across thresholds. This uncertainty is key to my enquiry; how to realise the physical and spatial representation of the blurred and uncertain edge – the penumbra of material. Within this body of work this edge can be seen and felt through cast shadows, within the certainty of materiality. The presence of the object on the surface is floating and shifting according to perception.” NL Nicholas’ work has been exhibited widely in the UK and overseas and is held in private and public collections including Fitzwilliam Museum, York City Art Gallery, Westerwald Keramikmuseum in Germany and Royal Caribbean International.
