About the Artist - Terra Hess
Ceramics is my passion. It began as a class that was required for me to get my geology degree. I noticed that when I was sitting at the wheel and throwing a cup my mind was still and happy. I enjoyed it but never thought much about it after getting my degree. Then I found myself in the middle of a divorce that had left me depressed and unsettled. I decided to go back to ceramics and use it as therapy. I allowed me to visit the darker corners of my mind and heal old wounds. It was then that I discovered that ceramics is my passion and I wanted to share it with everyone. Making mugs based on some of my favorite bands and their fun unique songs is my gig. I also love foraging and will create ceramic versions of my favorite wild food. I occasionally will take on customs if I feel that my ability can match a customers expectations.
I breathe, live, and work in the fresh Wyoming air. When I’m not covered in mud or a paint you can find me on lot, or in a body of freshwater connecting with the trout.
Please be patient if you need to email me. It could take several days to respond as my hands are often covered with clay.
