Nico Conti is a ceramic artist who is working clay in exciting, radical new ways. From his undergraduate days at MCAST in Malta to finishing top of his class at the Royal College of Art in 2019, he has continually excelled. In the short space of a few years he has won numerous prestigious awards and scholarships. He is represented by major galleries and has already exhibited in craft fairs where his work was singled out for praise. His name is now synonymous with 3D printing, but his work is rooted in tradition and Malta’s historical legacy, producing incredibly beautiful porcelain vessels that have this timeless, calm quality to them and an elegance that is classical.
