Nic weaves together memories of a hoard of ancient art, architecture and jewellery; myths, customs and cultures – Bronze and Iron Age, Celtic, Norse and Anglo-Saxon, the traditions borrowed by Tolkien for his Middle-earth – with a contemporary Bohemian slant.

Referring to museum pieces and the many images he has taken in the wilderlands of Britain, Europe and Scandinavia to evoke a mood, a particular sense of place, time or season.

Every piece is approached as he would a painting, sculptural assemblage or musical composition, often making and unmaking until the desired balance of elements and composition materializes.

Every piece is painstakingly and artfully finished by hand patination, matting or polishing – an elemental presence in every stunning Nic Waulker handmade design.

Enamelling is mostly done on copper in the fire of a lampworkers torch, allowing Nic to spontaneously ‘paint’ with the flame to produce stunning textures and colours.
