Nicholas Homoky

(British b.1950)

Nicholas Homoky, a Hungarian-born artist (b. 1950) was trained at Bristol Polytechnic and later refining his skills at the Royal College of Art in London, Homoky's artistic journey demonstrates his dedication to the craft of ceramics.

Specialising in vessels, Homoky's work is characterised by volume and space, expressed through the meticulous manipulation of porcelain and red clay. Employing techniques of wheel throwing, turning, and slab building, he crafts vessels that exude a crispness in both form and finish.

One of Homoky's distinctive stylistic features is his use of black rims and linear designs, inlaid with stained porcelain slip. This attention to detail not only adds visual depth to his pieces but also underscores his mastery over the medium.

Homoky has exhibited in galleries worldwide, his pieces have garnered acclaim for their aesthetic sophistication and technical finesse. Notable institutions such as the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Victoria and Albert Museum proudly house his work in their collections.

Beyond his artistic endeavours, Homoky has also made significant contributions to education, sharing his expertise in ceramics through teaching engagements in the UK, Europe, and the USA.
