Nick Weddell

Nick Weddell 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 armchairs 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.

In 2019, Nick Weddell will be a visiting artist at the Center for Contemporary Ceramics at California State University Long Beach before he travels to France to be a resident artist in Versailles. When he returns to the USA in the fall, he will join the Archie Bray Foundation as one of the new long-term resident artists.

Weddell’s work is in several private collections in the United States as well as in Australia, China, Japan, Europe, and Canada.
