Other professors that influenced Terrance were Robert Archambeau, known for his wood fired pottery and Paul Rozman, known for his highly decorative functional ware.

Terrance graduated with first-class honors in 1988 and shortly after, moved to Montreal, Québec. He shared a studio at 10 Ontario West in Montreal with a small group of potters and ceramists. The group dispersed in the spring of 2003, when the owner of the building sold it for condo development. Later that year, The Sanbao Ceramic Art Institute in Jingdezhen, China awarded Terrance a fellowship in 2003, 2005 and again in 2008. Shortly after his return from his second fellowship he established his new studio at Longueuil (St-Hubert), Quebec.

Terrance has had the opportunity to travel throughout Northern Canada, the USA, Europe, the Middle East and recently China. The people that he has met have all contributed to influence his direction in ceramics. The area of the medium that interest him the most are the Oriental forms, glazes, and decorative brush work. He has also created works in bronze, plaster and mixed media. His work can be found in private and government collections through out Canada, USA, China, Europe and the Middle East. Terrance’s is currently interested in creating images of Canada’s north land on porcelain using the cobalt blue and white techniques of the Chinese masters.

This is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful bowls I've ever seen. It's so unusual to have artwork on the inside AND outside! The new neighbors loved it!

This beautiful vase arrived promptly, in time for a Valentine's day gift for my very elegant 93-YO MIL. She loves the vase. It is hefty enough that with a tall arrangement, it looks good on the floor in a small niche in her living room. For Valentine's day, we raided my neighbor's woods for twigs with translucent red berries, twigs with hanging catkins and branches with evergreen leaves. The current arrangement includes dark red lilies, green spider mums, pussy willows. Although the vase is attractive empty, it's inspiring us with many ideas how to fill it, giving my MIL something nice to look at now that she's getting out less. Thank you
