Words on potter Nick Joerling from Art School Blog guest writer, artist and faculty member Judy Schaefer:

Nick Joerling’s fully functional ceramic forms flirt with you! They express the essence of the human body caught in coy almost cartoon movement, perhaps about to dance, and of human sensuality with their implication of lush physicality. The physical details are both expressive of that focus and are intrinsic to his shaping process. His gestural brushed lines and dots, like wheels, imply movement and simultaneously remind us of the poised human figure. Joerling pushes his forms to an edge, suggesting the risk of being “on point” literally and figuratively. His humor is subtle and beyond all else charming.
