Treasures of the Sea Pendent Copper Electroforming for Artists and Mad Scientists
A Pasadena Bead And Design Show Workshop [select another show]
After a career as a scientist Terry Henry answered her hearts call to turn to art full time and since November 2011 she hasn’t looked back! Terry is a native of California from the community of Los Gatos, she attended college at San Jose State University where she started out as and art student, however her concern for making a living resulted in a career path change to earth science; though all the while nourishing the desire to be and artist. Terry’s art embraces science, as she is best known for her electroforming work, which combines real flowers, insects, fossils with inorganic materials and her lampwork floral designs. Terry’s extensive teaching experience to adult learns in the field of art and science makes her class easy to understand and follow. Teaching experience: Teaching experience includes a State Single Subject Teaching Credentials in Art and Science and a Lifetime Community College Teaching Credential. I started teaching science in 1976 at State and Community College level, and art and science at the K-8 level. I teach flameworking, wire wrapping, and electroforming to adult learners across the country.
