Jeremy Nichols makes saltglazed domestic pots, specialising in teapots together with jugs, mugs and cups of varying shapes and sizes. The forms have been steadily evolving since 1998 when he started experimenting with open handles as an alternative to the closed loops conventionally used in ceramics. Jeremy's work is influenced by his early interests in aviation and the precision of engineered objects, alongside a more recent interest in contemporary architecture.
Jeremy has been working as a potter since graduating from the University of Westminster (Harrow) in 1997. This followed an 18 year career in Social work. Jeremy's work is both functional and visually arresting with a sense of movement and balance for both the hand and eye to appreciate. The ergonomics of the pot and the clarity of its form are equally important for Jeremy: for a design to be successful the pot must be satisfying and pleasurable to use, whilst at the same time having the power to hold the viewer's attention and interest.
