WATCH: Ceramic artist Nicola Dench opens doors to her studio

MIRAMAR PENINSULA artists opened their studios for the annual Artists in Action event in March.

The peninsula is home to 17 artists from photographers, sculptures and oil painters.

Award-winning ceramic artist Nicola Dench opened her Clay Penguin studio in Seatoun six years ago and finds her inspiration from walking on the beach.

“For ages I’ve been walking down on the beach and I come across this seaweed. It’s quite amazing how it has all these sorts of ruffles,” she says.

She learnt her skills at the Learning Connexion Art School 11 years ago, starting as a painter and moving to ceramics.

Len Castle is one artist who inspires Mrs Dench.

She has been making the Dominion Post Sports Person of the Year award trophy’s for four years.
