Niki's attachment to being both sculptor and potter and the decision to pronounce herself as one over the other has always been a challenge. Niki brings both into her ceramics and functional sculptures. Niki Croom's sense of imagination is expressed in each unique ceramic art piece. Her shapes and designs bring her imagination into her ceramics for use in the functional world of consumption and indulgence.
Niki's designs are initially developed through her love of painting and drawing which range from abstract to real life using multimedia. Some of her new work carries her 2d idea into her 3d work.
Niki is a graduate of the arts program at the South Carolina Governors School of Art and Humanities where her interest and love for both sculpture and ceramics was discovered
Niki Croom attends the Fine Art program at Alfred University in Alfred New York, where the atmosphere and magic of Alfred continues to inspired Niki immensely in her pursuit of refining her artist’s voice.
Niki looks forward to finishing her education and experience at Alfred as she goes back to her senior year this coming fall.
