Teresa Chlapowski

Biography

Having been a knit wear designer for many decades, the desire to create her own “Art”finally took over. Starting with ceramics and sculpture, Theresa then discovered glass and fell in love with this amazing, alchemic medium, an alternative universe of just light and shadows, yet still very solid.

Teresa uses a variety of techniques: Fusing, casting in the kiln and sand casting in a hot glass studio, as well as combining glass with ceramics and photography.

Teresa has taken glass master classes with Max Jacquard and Colin Reid, has sand cast glass at the Suwa-Garasuno-Sato prize for the best innovative glass work and her piece “Modern Saint” was showed in Japan in 2016.

Teresa has shown at the Mall Galleries, Pardon Mill (Harlow), Aubergine Gallery (Wimbledon), Nude Tin Can Gallery (St Albans) and also at the POSK Gallery in Hammersmith.

Teresa is a council member of The Chelsea Art Society, a member of The Contemporary Glass Society (CGS), Association of Polish Artists in Great Britain (APA), Hertfordshire Visual Art Forum (HVAF) and EWAAC (East-WestArt).
