Teena Gould biography

Biography and CV

Sculptural forms and vessels, hand built in ceramic, with highly textured, distressed organic surface. Influenced by the dynamic meeting of the sea and rock structures. Residencies and public art projects working collaboratively with schools and communities. Ceramic sculptures, murals and mosaics for public and community spaces; indoor and outdoor; sharing design, making, construction and installation.

I am moved by the deeper, unseen forces of energy that have shaped our landscape over time. I approach my work with an awareness of that power. Eruptions on the surface of the clay are caused by inner movement within the form.
