Slip-cast porcelain cup with mishima drawing (Mt. Hope Bridge, Bristol RI)
Nicole draws each image by hand directly into the porcelain clay with a knife and inlays a black underglaze. The high temperature of the kiln combined with a clear glaze overlay slightly blurs the drawing, much like a faded memory.
