About Me


I AM T. BOCK!¬† ūüėȬ† Well, it’s not like Iron Man, lol, but I am Theresa Bockenstedt and that seems to be a mouthful some times so I frequently go by T. Bock.¬† I started creating ceramic projects in high school and then moved on to a real career of dental hygiene.¬† After being a dental hygienist since 2004, getting married, and becoming debt free I am finally able ¬†to pursue a dream…¬† to be an artist.¬† What you see here on this site are my labors of love.¬† Pure emotion in times of strength, weakness, and hope for my future. ¬†Growing up in a house full of fabrics and sewing, picking out different colors and prints on fabrics, has inspired the textures and colors on my pottery. ¬†I am using a white stoneware firing it to cone 6 (2175 degrees). ¬† ¬†If you have any questions or comments please contact me at theresa@tbockdesigns.com or call 515-321-5834.¬† I hope you enjoy viewing my page as much as I enjoy sharing the pictures on it.

Studio Tour!!

These are pictures of my studio and kilns in my garage.  In the first picture is my studio helper ;).  Then in the other pictures you can see my slab roller, wall of glazes, chemical cabinet, wheel, work table, and dry rack.  If you look close you can find my studio companion, my fish Captain Jack.
