Richard Nickel

Richard Nickel is a local ceramic artist who addresses themes of love, power and absurdity through folk-art inspired pieces. Bright, fun and colorful slab constructions mimic traditional ceramic vessels and sculptural wall platters use figuration and pattern to draw narratives dealing with family dynamics and power structures. Nickel’s clay works have been featured in several group and solo exhibitions including Cup: The Intimate Object IV, Fort Wayne, ID; HALIZO Art Festival, Norfolk, VA and The Ohr-O’Keefe Museum of Art, Biloxi, Mississippi. His work has been seen in multiple publications including Clay Times, 500 Animals in Clay and Ceramics Monthly. Currently he is an Associate Professor and Program Director of Art Education at Old Dominion University.
