Large Hearth jug in matt black. The form is bold and pleasing and features Nicola's trademark perfect handle. Fully functional, tactile in touch and a joy to hold, this large jug is as much a sculptural piece as it is a useful addition to the home.
About the Artist:
Nicola Tassie trained originally as a painter at the Central School of Art and Design, but now works exclusively in ceramics after specialising in the craft at Islington Institute. Tassie’s ceramics explore and manipulate the material and conceptual possibilities of domestic forms, investigating the relationship between function and art.
Tassie is a founding member and Director of Education at Standpoint Studios. She creates still-life sets, installations and sculptural objects from her domestic wares and has an ongoing collaboration with the designer Margaret Howell.
