Teresa Seaton Studio & Gallery
Teresa Seaton creates highly original, dynamic landscape and floral designs in Stained Glass for galleries and private commissions. Her uniquely sculptural work is a trademark, featuring multi layers of panels and glass with spun wire incorporated as a structural element and design accent.
She is inspired by Tiffany’s innovative technique for layering multiple panels into finished glass windows as well as the dynamic simplicity of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Prairie Glass style. The resulting panels display an elegant simplicity filled with rhythmic patterns and flowing organic lines.
Her interpretation of the Canadian landscape uses layered glass panel construction to evoke the stylized outlined imagery often found in the Group of Seven. Her use of a refined colour pallet creates a mood and atmosphere that is distinctive to her work and reflective of her artistic message, making her one of Canada’s most sought after Stained Glass artist.
Teresa Seaton studied Graphic Design at Sheridan College and obtained the degree, BFA in drawing and sculpture from York University. Her career in design led her to positions as Senior Designer, Associate Creative Director and Creative Director with clients from Toronto to New York.
Teresa studied the craft of stained glass with Paul Beatty starting in 2001 and has operated as a full time artist since 2010. In 2013 she openned her Studio & Gallery in Burlington, ON. As well as giving her a place to showcase her own art work she has opened her Gallery to other Canadian artists by showcasing them for 2 months at a time.
A member of the Ontario Crafts Council, The Glass Association of Canada and the Ontario Clay and Glass Association (FUSION), Teresa received an Ontario Art Council grant in 2010. Her work has been shown in The Angie Strauss Gallery in Niagara on the Lake, McMaster Innovation Park, The McMichael Canadian Gallery, Glass under Grass at the Royal Botanical Gardens and the BAC.
“Layers. We are made up of them. Nature works in them. I play with them. Light and Glass” Teresa Seaton
