This amazing opportunity culminated in the group show Hours and Ours held at the Carnegie Gallery, Dundas, Ontario (2016) Through this mentorship Teresa learned about the intricacies of wood firing, and how to create conceptual and functional pieces that are enhanced by this firing process.

The reality is that this group of professionals are friends who fire together, critique and help one another grow as artists.
