Katy Nickell

Katy Nickell has been working in ceramics and 3-D art for over 25 years. Her work has been exploring the innate draw and power in femininity, frequently using flowers & nature to represent those qualities. The goal is to create work that is enticing, delicate and powerful all at once. 


Katy taught art at Norman High School for 6 years. Her previous teaching experience was at Central Washington University and Oklahoma City Community College. She graduated from the University of Oklahoma with her Bachelor’s Degree; she went on to receive a Masters in Fine Art from Central Washington University. 

Hand-building, throwing and slip-casting are some of the techniques that are used in creating her artwork. For the flower covered series, she creates the base form from slabs or on the pottery wheel. Then shapes and applies each flower or petal individually. The Aspen series is made using a slip-casting process. She uses stained liquid porcelain to create many different designs. 

Currently Katy is a full-time artist and a part-time private art teacher. She is working hard to develop her art and spread the joy of creating.
