Nicholas Bivins incorporates a variety of materials in his work including wood, auto paint, plaster, clay, decals. The gusto of vibrant colors in contrast to white porcelain is his aim; like hot rods and chrome! The tray sets create problem solving oppertunities for Nick to explore arrangement, rest, utility, and mobility.

Mathew holds an MFA in Ceramics from the University of Colorado at Boulder (2009) and a BFA in Studio Art from Valdosta State University (2004).…See More
