This is Ian Alexander Nicholson and I live and work in Scotland's capital city, Edinburgh. This is my online representation where I bring together my work, ideas and journey in one digital sphere of creativity. While my work lies primarily in fine product design, I am a jeweller, silversmith, goldsmith, sculptor, photographer, writer, poet, teacher, workshop facilitator and activist for the responsible and ethical development in not only my industry, but all areas of life.
The most wonderful thing about creation is the journey, everything between conception and conclusion. While we are all conscious individuals, not enough of us are aware of our consciousness. Consequently fewer of us ever fully understand or appreciate this, often being too concerned with the destination. Few people question this and most just accept without thinking, less people learn how to think freely, while even fewer still understand how to think outside the box and, sadly, just a tiny minority ever realise that in fact, there is no box, and we are limited only by our imagination, which is beautifully without limits. Every corner of life holds infinite potential to inspire and while it takes a certain open and creative mind to understand this, the simplest of ideas can become the greatest of works.
