Nicole Fraley – The relationship I have with my art work is personal and therapeutic. With clay I am able to physically and mentally work through my frustrations and embrace the frays and flaws in front of me. This allows me to find peace of mind as I create.

Most of my inspiration is found from exploring the Cleveland Metroparks, working at a craft brewery, and working at a pottery studio. The creative people I meet and work with daily are the inspiration and motivation for my work. I wouldn’t be who I am without these unique people and environments. This is why I have recently started to create more functional pottery. It’s very meaningful to see people connect with my work in their own personal way.

Nicole Fraley – Creating is personal and therapeutic to me. My recent work includes mostly functional pottery. I love being able to create a piece of art that someone can utilize and connect with.

Living with Meniere’s disease is reflected in most of my artwork. Coping with imbalance has had a huge impact on my work. I have learned to embrace imperfection and find beauty in the frays and flaws in the world around us.

I find most of the inspiration for my art from my walks in nature. When I’m not exploring, I’m working around other people who inspire and motivate me to create. ‚Äč
