BA (Hons) Fine Art, Nottingham Trent University.

Madeline Denny-Gelder is an artist who primarily works with clay, drawn to the material for its tactile nature and clear sense of touch manipulation. She explains:

“I use the material to explore an ongoing interest in craft, process and the domestic, creating hand-built sculpture and thrown objects. My interest lies within people’s interaction with ceramics, and I explore this through the relationship between the haptic and the optic.”

Degree Show: Dates for the Nottingham Trent University show, entitled ‘Liminal’, are still to be confirmed. A website showcasing the work of graduating artists will be live from 26 June 2020. Follow NTU Fine Art on Instagram for updates.
