About the Maker
Nicola Kerslake was introduced to the art of medal-making in 2014, the year she was awarded the prize for a ‘cutting edge medal’ for her entry in the British Art Medal Society Student Medal Project. Throughout the rest of her degree course at Falmouth University she continued to experiment with casting and to develop her printmaking skills. On graduating in September 2015, Kerslake became the BAMS New Medallist, during which year she experimented with medallic art. As part of this project, she spent a month in Bulgaria working under the tuition of Bogomil Nikolov and was also able to create a medal using computer-modelling software at the UK’s Royal Mint.
Alongside medal-making, Kerslake is a practising printmaker. She was commissioned to take part in the OSR Projects Weather Station Part II exhibition that took place as part of the b-side festival in Portland, Dorset, in September 2016.
