John and I have known Terri for over 20 years, and I want you to know her too. I want you to come in and see how she uses metal and river rocks to form jewelry that has exceptional form and texture.
Terri was a psychotherapist before becoming an artist. Terri wrote:
“Therapy was an intense and demanding profession. With burnout approaching, retirement plans set in motion; I took a jewelry class at a nearby art center. I was three again. I was making art. I am now 15 in ‘jewelry years’ and still discovering my identity.”
One thing for certain is that Terri’s identity is shaped both by her past professional life and her current one as an artist.
“Coming from a fine arts perspective, function is an important dimension for me. Coming from a psychological perspective, I make jewelry because of the intimacy the function allows. I use metal and river rocks because they are strong materials with a rich historic value and intrinsic links to our civilization.”
Terri was here in May for a trunk show. We are so glad she is coming back in October. At the trunk show she will spend time with you showing you her art. If you do not see what you want, she will design something special for you.
When you meet her, she will be your friend too. She will be here on October 8 and 9.
