Terri has been actively involved in Visual Arts education both as a professional and a volunteer for over 25 years. She has spent the past 10 years developing skills and techniques specific toward metal and glass through courses in jewellery design, glass carving, stained glass and fused glass.
Drawing on her background in science she has enjoyed developing glass techniques which result in the tactile, sculptural elements that are the trademark of her work. Most pieces are both decorative and functional merging the concepts of beauty and utility. An exciting segment of her work involves transforming the glass from a wedding toast or ceremony into a gift for the bride and groom facilitating the “fusion” of beauty, sentiment, and spirit.
