Artist of the Day / Terrance Lazaroff                       

“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.


About destructivetesting

I'm a self-taught artist who prefers to use found objects in ways that were never intended. I'm not interested in making 10 or 100 of the same object. This, of course, takes more time to make each piece. I also prefer a more minimalist look, where each part of a piece can be appreciated. I consider my clocks to be small sculptures with moving parts. And, my lamps to be small sculptures with light. My mirrors are reflective sculptures. DESTRUCTIVE TESTING means to push something to it's limits to understand it's structural performance or material behavior under different stresses. I interpret this in my artwork as using materials in different ways or combinations than they were designed to be used. I also just like the slightly ominous sound of the term...
