Terri Logan - Richmond, Indiana
Terri Logan is one of our much loved jewelers. Each piece is unique due to the individuality of the stones involved. Her work has national appeal, and several on our staff wear her work regularly. Each stone is bezel-set and many sections have small etched shapes on the back.
As she wrote some years ago,"Becoming a jeweler/metalsmith was less than a direct path for me. I was a psychotherapist for eighteen years before I decided to become a full-time artist. Like most of us, I began making art around the age of three. Art was my first real language, my first record of the world and my experiences. By nine, I knew I had some talent, but it wasn't until my twenties that I discovered sculpture...
"Narrowing my academic pursuits became a difficult task since I hate to refuse myself anything, thus I was fortunate to secure a double major. I was a second year BFA sculpture student with a child-psychology co-major when my studies were interrupted. Economy and efficiency led to the decision to graduate early with a BA from Indiana University. In graduate school, I was able to unite my love for art and psychology by receiving my clinical degree, MAT (Master of Art Therapy) from Wright State University. Thus I began a wonderful professional career, a general private practice in which I utilized the arts in many forms of treatment, diagnosis and prevention.
"Therapy was an intense and demanding profession, and for me, it had a life-span. With burn-out approaching, retirement plans set in motion, I took a jewelry class at a nearby art center.
"I was three again!
"I was making art!
Coming from a psychological perspective, I make jewelry because of the intimacy the function allows. I use metal and stone (river rocks) because they are inherently strong materials with a rich historic value and intrinsic links to our civilization. Their abundant character, separate or in relation to each other, offers infinite possibilities as a language."
Terri Logan has garnered many awards and prestigious gallery placements, including regular representation in the annual SOFA exhibitions. She is a resident of Indiana.
