Terry Fromm’s metal art reflects her experience with and influence by a variety of materials as she uses metals in ways similar to using fabrics in clothing and quilt construction in the past. She utilizes the properties of metal to either soften and form it into fluid shapes resembling ribbons and fabric folds, or to fold and built it into rigid three-dimensional vessels and containers.
Terry is enrolled in the Diploma Certificate Program at the Glassell School of Art in Houston, majoring in jewelry and enameling, and she works full time as a metal artist. She gained her initial metalsmithing expertise through classes at Glassell, workshops at Creative Side Jewelry Academy of Austin, and a concentration in metals at Penland School of Crafts with Lola Brooks. She has also attended one to two week workshops with Michael Good, John Cogswell, and Ndidi Ekubia. She was a 2015 Resident Artist at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft.
