Originally from Austin, Texas, Weddell received a BFA in Ceramics from Texas State University in 2016 and currently resides in Western New York where he is in his second year of graduate school at the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Weddell’s work is the fantasy of physical reality, rooted in the language of pottery, vessel, and landscape. He taps into the familiarity of these subjects-be it cups, trees, or materials-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. He has shown work at Eutectic Gallery in Portland, Oregon, The Nevica Project in Chicago, Illinois, and most recently had a solo show at East Side Pot Shop in Austin, Texas. Weddell’s work is also part of numerous private collections around the world.
