After contracting Lyme disease and having to give up her full-time job, Dr Nicola Seal set out on a mission to turn her pottery hobby into a successful business.
Nicola, who works from her home in Westhill, creates statement fruit bowls, bowl and spoon sets, trinket dishes, planters, whisky sippers, jugs, vases and many other quirky items.
“I don’t do straight lines. I make cuddly, tactile pottery which begs to be handled. No two pieces are alike as I don’t use moulds. I make things completely by hand without the use of a potter’s wheel.”
