Terry began his creative journey as an apprentice production thrower working in the Leach tradition. His transformation from a production thrower to a studio potter took many years and extensive journeys around the world researching his craft. He eventually settled in the gentle hills of Tuscany, Italy. His work is divided between functional and domestic wares and one -off individual pieces. He is particularly well known for his textured thrown and altered pieces which have been named in Italy as “pelle d’elefante” (elephant skin). Terry has exhibited extensively within Europe and also sells work from his own studio. He has stocked the gallery since 2014 and work is available for the majority of each year.
