Nick Weddell is a sculptor from Austin Texas. He received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Texas State University in 2016 and currently resides in New York where he is in his final year of graduate school at the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Weddell’s work is the fantasy of physical reality, rooted in the language of pottery, vessel, and landscape. He taps into the familiarity of these subjects- be it cups, trees, or material- in order to catalyze a celebration of that which is and a challenge to seek that which could be. Weddell’s work is an arbiter of progress, a wrecking ball of convention, and above all a harbinger of joy.
Weddell’s work is in several private collections in the United States as well as Australia, China, Japan, Europe and Canada.
