Tedd currently lives in Millersville, PA with his wife and two sons, where he works in and maintains both jewelry and blacksmithing studios. He is a part-time studio artist, part-time educator, part time tool-maker/repairman; and in the summer time, an avid fisherman. His metalsmithing training came from the University of Wisconsin - LaCrosse and Arizona State University where he earned the degrees BS in Art (’96), and an MFA (’01), respectively. Tedd’s work speaks of the rural nature of his upbringing, and his love of the outdoors. Besides jewelry and small metal objects, Tedd utilizes a blacksmithing studio to create indoor sculptural objects. McDonah’s work features techniques that bridge many aspects found with in disciplines of blacksmithing, non-ferrous metalsmithing, and jewelry making.
