Biography for Carol McNicoll

Born:1943-12-24 - Birmingham, England


'I make vessels because they have a long history of functioning both as sculpture and utilitarian design'.'I am excited by the possibility of making everyday objects that make people think, providing a moment of delight when it is least expected'.


Carol McNicoll attended a foundation course at Solihull College of Technology (1966-67), followed by studying Fine Art at Leeds Polytechnic (1967-70), then studied Ceramics at the Royal College of Art (1970-73).


Before going to the Royal College of Art, London Carol McNicoll worked as a machinist for the fashion designer Zandra Rhodes. McNicoll makes sculptural but functional ceramics, mainly slip cast vessels for the domestic environment. She also teaches at Camberwell Art School and designs for mass production.
