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 child, the Combi road-trip on your OE, fishing and sailing with your Dad. The simplicity of the images provokes your memory to recall the rest.
These simple and wonderful pieces are a keepsake for home or holiday home and fit beautifully in any space. They are wildly 'Kiwi' and totally collectible.
