Hi! I’m Nicole, the face behind NMB ceramics! I’m a small batch potter who started about 6 years ago after taking a class at my local studio. I also have recently gone back to work as a nurse part time.

My love of pottery started when I received a gift from a local potter as a wedding gift and slowly started collecting pottery.

Make Waynesboro Clay Studio came into town and as a stay at home mom of very young twins and not feeling called to go back working as a nurse, I needed an outlet for myself.  So I picked up pottery and fell in love. It truly is a form of meditation for me!

My pottery is inspired by nature and the world around me. I have been in a handful of local stores, craft markets and art shows including most recently 2021 & 2023 40UNDER40 at the Shenandoah Valley Art Center and Arts for Gifts at the Staunton Augusta Art Center.

I am originally from up north  but grew up mostly in Hampton, Va and then spent eight wonderful years in Richmond, Va.  I have now settled down in the Shenandoah Valley with my husband and 9 year old twins.
