More About Pursuing Perfection by Nicholas Bivins

Nicholas Bivins is on an aesthetic quest for a personal definition of perfection in his studio pottery. He is exploring a tension between being handmade and looking handmade, between a geometric precision and evidence of the hand.

Nick's show includes a few of his signature sets, as well as individual functional pieces such as cups, pourers, bottles and more. His minimalist designs are intended to help studio pottery continue forward as relevant in our contemporary society.

Bivins holds BFA and BA degrees from the University of Washington, and an MFA from Ohio University. He has been an arist-in-residence at Red Lodge Clay Center and is currently a long-term resident at the Archie Bray Foundation in Helena, Montana, where he is the recipient of the Matsutani Fellowship.
