Stoneware, porcelain and glaze
Nick Weddell (b. 1994) is a sculptor from Austin, Texas. He received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in ceramics from Texas State University (2016) and a Master of Fine Arts from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University (2019). Weddell creates metamorphosed versions of everyday objects ranging from cups to couches that utilize familiarity as a tool to infiltrate everyday moments. Once there, Weddell’s work challenges mundanity and forges joy by rebounding between absurd seduction and unsettling repulsion. Nick Weddell has been a visiting artist at the Center for Contemporary Ceramics at California State University Long Beach, the Lefebvre et Fils residency in Versailles, France, and is currently a long-term resident artist at the Archie Bray Foundation in Helena, Montana. Weddell’s work is in several private collections in the United States as well as in Australia, China, Japan, Europe, and Canada.
