Teri Walker & Chad Ridgeway

Artist + Teri Walker & Chad Ridgeway

Our journey together as a couple and as artistic partners began in 2007 when we met and fell in love. Chad Ridgeway was an American metal sculptor and chef living and working in Paris, and Teri Walker was a Canadian glassblower and painter living in New Orleans. Suddenly the possibilities seemed endless for us to create sculptures together and combine all our skills to reflect our whimsical way of life. Teri Walker graduated from the Ontario College of Art in Toronto Canada followed by Rhode Island School of Design (Masters) and has been an artist in residence at Torontos Harbourfront Studios and the New Orleans School of Glassworks.

We continue to travel regularly between Canada and the United states teaching and making art in both countries.

We are fascinated by all the glass shapes we can make on the end of a blowpipe at 2000°F. Combining these shapes with welded and forged metal allows us a greater scale and detail.

Teri Walker and Chad Ridgeway are New Orleans artists living and working in the Marigny neighborhood.
