Nick Weddell is an artist who lives and works in Chicago, Illinois. He received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in ceramics from Texas State Universi- ty (2016) and a Master of Fine Arts from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University (2019). Weddell plays with the archetypes of an expanding range of everyday objects: tweaking cups, rugs, and armchairs with a mirthfulness that splashes into our everyday routines and domestic spaces. Weddell’s work is catalyst for curiosity, a challen- ger of convention, and above all a harbinger of joy. Nick Weddell has been a resident artist at the Center for Contemporary Ceramics at CaliforniaState University Long Beach (2019), Lefebvre et Fils in Versai- lles, France (2019), and is currently a long-term resident at the Archie Bray Foundation in Helena, Montana (2019-2021). Weddell’s work has been collected by the Everson Museum of Art in Syracuse, New York, the Dallas Museum of Art in Dallas, Texas, and the San Antonio Museum of Art in San Antonio, Texas, as well as in several private collections in the United States as well as in Australia, China, Japan, Europe, and Canada.
