Nicolin Haines holds up a piece of ceramic art that was one of the exhibits on display for a Faculty Art Exhibition at Wilmington College. He said he likes to experiment with different surfaces, including bubbling crater glazes. Note how this piece of artwork has metallic features. His artwork has a lot to do with mutation and adaptation, he said. Haines, who is a son of Michele Carr who had photographic art displayed at the event, attended Wilmington High School before going to Kent State University where he graduated in spring 2017.
