Biography

Teresa Deible was born and raised in the hills of Ohio and served in the US Navy, working and traveling around the world.  She was medically retired from the military and returned to college.  Teresa was introduced to working with clay while studying Art History at St. Mary’s College in Maryland.  She spent two summers at St. Mary’s focusing on Raku, a Japanese tradition of working with and firing clay.  She later moved to New England to study Clinical Mental Health and Art Therapy at Lesley College in Cambridge, MA.  Between academic pursuits, she studied ceramics at The DeCordova Museum and Sculpture Park in Lincoln, MA.  She currently works out of her home studio in Bedford, MA and takes workshops with leading ceramic artists.  


Artist's Statement

Clay is an essential part of my daily life; I am either working with it or thinking about it. It is a medium that continues to amaze me, providing me with new ideas and waves of creative energy. I primarily work with slabs of clay, focusing on form and surface treatment. 

Texture plays a major role in my work.   I enjoy texturing small slabs clay and finding interesting ways to join these slabs together to form unique pieces.  I may also use multiple textures on a single slab to give the piece a sense of depth and interest.  

Nature continues to inspire and inform my work.  During the summer my passion for gardening inspires me to create vessels for floral arrangements, as well as using fresh leaves to imprint onto clay – an ultimate blend of nature and art.  During the winter months I use punches of color using colored clay to continue those summer garden hues in my work.
