“I stopped working in ceramics when I realized that I didn’t have the patience necessary for a process that can easily take a month or more from start to finish. I also found that I didn’t have the aptitude for the attention to the technical details one must have for this. Many of my ‘pieces’ ended up as pieces, literally!” Mike Smith
Terrance obviously has the aptitude and patience and imagination required.
Terrance has had the opportunity to travel throughout Northern Canada, the USA, Europe, the Middle East and recently China. The people that he has met have all contributed to influence his direction in ceramics. The area of the medium that interest him the most are the Oriental forms, glazes, and decorative brush work. He has also created works in bronze, plaster and mixed media. His work can be found in private and government collections through out Canada, USA, China, Europe and the Middle East. Terrance is currently interested in creating images of Canada’s north land on porcelain using the cobalt blue and white techniques of the Chinese masters.
