HOT TOFFEE creator, Nicole has always been passionate about art. After completing a Bachelor of Art in Visual Art - majoring in printmaking she travelled Europe and then Japan. During her six year stay in Japan she studied Togei (pottery), Shodou (Japanese calligraphy), Ikebana (flower arranging) and learnt how to make kiln fired glass accessories. She bought a petite kiln.
Returning to Australia in 2004 with her kiln she set up a home based studio in Brisbane, Queensland. In 2005 Hot Toffee was born. Inspired by all things sweet, Japanese art & design and strongly influenced by the beautiful beaches of Australia - Nicole focuses on the small details and creates beautiful products that are little pieces of art - ART YOU CAN WEAR and as the name suggests... some pieces even look good enough to eat.
Each item is handmade in Nicole's home based studio just west of Brisbane.
