Teri Frame earned a BFA at the Kansas City Art Institute and an MFA at The Pennsylvania State University. Although she was trained as a ceramic artist, performance, video, and digital imaging have come into her multi-media work, and she continues to move among these genres. Her research addresses notions of human beauty and their inextricable link with social hierarchies.Frame has exhibited, lectured, and taught internationally and throughout the United States. She has completed artist residencies at the Interlochen Arts Academy, MacDowell, PlatteForum, Emmanuel College, the Australian National University, and the Shangyu Celadon Modern International Ceramics Center in Shaoxing, China. Her work has been featured in Ceramics Monthly, Ceramics: Art and Perception, Monthly Ceramic Art Korea, and the Journal of Australian Ceramics. Frame is currently an Associate Professor at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater.
