Your Instructor

Teresa Bergen

I am a maker and a storyteller, working with my hands, primarily in clay. Ceramics are a part of daily life and the humble approachability of the medium appeals to me. I hand build figurative ceramic sculpture, puppets and kinetic art. Through the process of transforming soft malleable mud into a finished piece with jewel, like permanence I aspire to create something extraordinary, theatrical, full of life and a sense of humour. My work explores relationships, through movement, myth and folklore. Mechanical kinetic elements draw you in, to play look closer and question what animates us. I am interested in the push and pull of emotions and their power over actions both creative and destructive. As a friend, wife and and mother I work intuitively with thoughts of how we love, cooperate, work against and depend on each other. There is beauty in our flaws and foibles.
