Text from object entry in A. Game (2016) ‘Contemporary British Crafts: The Goodison Gift to the Fitzwilliam Museum’. London: Philip Wilson Publishers: Nicholas Homoky was born in Hungary. He trained at the West of England College of Arts in Bristol and at the Royal College of Art, London. He has taught regularly since 1976 and was until recently a Senior Lecturer at the University of the West of England, Bristol. He is an innovative potter whose work is mainly centred around the vessel, seen primarily as a visual object. Line and form are his chief concerns, though his work is also formed through his interest in painting, sculpture, folk art and design. Nicholas Homoky: ‘My work attempts to close the gap between the innocence of Alfred Wallis and the purity of Ben Nicholson.’
