I can attest that Nicole's work is of excellent quality since I do have my own skull cup from her.
Nicole works in clay and mixed media collages. You can see more of these works on her site here and you can find everything you like about her on facebook here. Currently she has been working mostly with ceramics, especially on skull cups and mugs which can be found in her Etsy shop and several galleries. Nicole draws on the essence of the mediums she crafts to find her inspiration. " I embrace the inherent characteristics of each material I work with, each adding its own influence and expression with my work."
[NOTE: If you're reading this on Facebook or Google+ then be sure to leave your comment on the original Skull-A-Day.com post if you want to be officially entered in the contest.]
IMPORTANT: Don't forget to include a way of contacting you(either an email in the post OR be sure your blogger profile has a working email link for you). Entries are only valid with this information.
You have until Midnight Eastern time Wednesday February 8th to enter so don't wait... do it now.
Note: Nicole agrees to pay for shipping the mug to residents of the United States and Canada only. Sorry to everyone else. Ceramics are heavy and costs to ship them are also.
Of course you don't have to wait until the end of the contest to get your own mug, cup, or tumbler. Nicole's Etsy store has loads skullware so don't fret if you don't get this one. She'll keep making more. Thanks, Nicole!
