INTERview | Terry Kovalcik


Terry Kovalcik — “Working in metal clay allows me to go beyond two-dimensional space.”
After more than 30 years working as an illustrator, I was drawn to metal clay as a way to bring form and movement into my art. Many of my pieces are made of multiple elements that hang, dangle and swing with the movement of the body. This gives the piece life and adds an element of whimsy. After sketching my designs on paper, it’s the process of creating, sculpting and assembling these pieces that are most gratifying. I’ve become passionate about making boxes that allows me to work on both the inside and outside designs—with the mystery of its interior and the secrets that can be hidden inside. These little surprises are special gifts to the wearer that they can choose to share with others. I create a sense of color and space through the use of various surface treatments — from highly polished silver to dark, textural matte finishes.
