Crystal Nykoluk, Winnipeg, MB: Ceramics
Crystal is a shaper of earth, transforming raw mud into hybrid forms of sculpture and pottery. It was at the University of Manitoba where she discovered clay and how the material satisfied her need to build things in the third dimension. Always a lover of Lego and K’nex, Crystal found she thrived on the technical challenges the ceramic medium had to offer. She has taught at the Winnipeg Art Gallery and at The Edge Clay Centre, inspiring others to express themselves and to be freely intuitive with clay.
