View From The Pines
Artist: Teresa Dunlop
The work Teresa is presenting in "View From the Pines" has been wood fired. The effect of atmospheric firing where ash and flame kiss and settle on the objects gives an added and sometimes surprising layer of meaning to a ceramic form.
For most of her adult life, Teresa Dunlop was a school teacher who facilitated her students' creative joy in the making process. Finally, wanting to experience that same joy, Teresa decided to return to school entering the Craft and Design Program at Sheridan College. After graduation, Teresa completed a three year residency in the Ceramics Studio at Harbourfront Centre. In 2017, she opened her own studio in Newmarket, Ontario. This second career has been a wonderful and revitalizing experience.
