ABOUT NICOLA DENCH
Nicola Dench is well known for her mono-printed tiles of Wellington and surrounds as well as images celebrating her love of the coast. Nicola also creates an expansive variety of work based around socio-political themes, never shy of tackling difficult subject matter. She has been selected for emerging ceramic artist awards as well as other National award exhibitions where she has received acclaim. Her work is held in private collections
throughout New Zealand and overseas.
Nicola moved to Papamoa two years ago after 10 years as a fulltime ceramic artist
working and teaching ceramics at her studio in Wellingon.
Recently graduating with the New Zealand Diploma of Art and Design
she is making the transition back to full time immersion in ceramics.
Nicola's wonderful ceramic tiles evoke a feeling of nostalgia, a desire to remember - forgotten times, moments,
memories - caravan trips at Christmas as a kid, the Combi road-trip on your OE, fishing and sailing with your Dad.
The simplicity of the images leaves your memory to recall the rest.
