Touch is a critical aspect to Nicole Moan‘s work. Her vibrant and textured ceramic corsets do not just invite the viewer to brush their fingers over the crevices and curves, they demand it. Her flair for creating innovative works of art that are as durable as they are eye-popping is earning her a growing fan base among the art and fashion communities across the nation and overseas, though neither group has quite figured out what to do with her.
Born into a family of artists, Moan continues to soak up a vast array of imagery to incorporate into her wearable sculptures. The ceramic structure then allows her to emulate anything from fine china, ruffles, superhero costumes to battle armor.
