Laura Nuchols

BIOGRAPHY

Ceramic artist Laura Nuchols enjoys listening to classic English murder mysteries while she labors over her highly refined sgraffito images on ceramic tiles. 

 

“Watching an image appear as I carve the surface intrigues and surprises me,” says Nuchols, “much like the unfolding of a good mystery novel.” 

 

Sgraffito, a technique in ceramic decoration, is where the top layer of glaze is scratched with a design to reveal a different color underneath.
