Terence studied at the University of Oklahoma, receiving a Fine Arts degree in Object Design. From the time he fired his first glazed piece, he knew clay was his medium of expression. However, following graduation, he applied his design expertise in graphic design working at Sandia Labs for many years. During that time he designed and constructed a studio and a large home for his family in Tijeras Canyon. This proved to be such a time-consuming task that he was unable to give much time to his ceramic studio. Since retiring from Sandia in 1989, he has at last been able to devote time to working with clay .
He has exhibited work in the New Mex. Potter’s Assoc. Celebration of Clay, the Biennial Southwest Artist Series at the Albuquerque Museum, The “Internal Illumination” exhibit at The Foundry Art Centre in St. Charles, Missouri , and the 17th National Ceramic Competition at the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts.
Although he has produced many functional pieces he prefers one-of-a-kind abstract sculptural items. Here are images of some of his work.
Terence has been an NMPCA member since 2002.
