Nicola Dench – The Clay Penguin
About the Artist
Most of my work explores the concepts of fragility and change as seen in the natural environment and in human nature. I try to create surfaces that are evocative and tactile and full of energy. My mono print tiles embrace Wellington and its surroundings and explore our cultural heritage.
I’m a full time ceramic artist, enjoy sharing my passion for clay with others and teach weekly classes at my studio, The Clay Penguin, in Seatoun.
My work is held in private collections throughout New Zealand and overseas. I exhibit throughout New Zealand.
