Timothy Lloyd's esteem as a scholar and a teacher is equaled only by his reputation as an artist. He uses various metals to create unique jewelry, medals, sculptures and vessels, and his work is widely recognized and admired in national and international art circles.
Lloyd earned a BFA from Kent State University, and an MFA from The School for American Craftsmen at R.I.T. He holds the title of Class of 1941 Professor of Art and the Liberal Arts, Emeritus, Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota. In 2004, Lloyd retired from 40 years of teaching. His retirement was celebrated with the international show KETTLES, Japanese Artistry and American Artists curated by Laurel Bradley of Carleton College.
Lloyd's work has been shown nationally and internationally, and he has been represented by fine galleries including Esther Saks, Chicago, IL: Clark Gallery, Lincoln, MA; The Farrell Collection, Washington, DC; Katie Gringrass, Santa Fe, MN; Callaway Galleries, Rochester, MN; Raymond Avenue Gallery, St. Paul, MN. and Helen Drutt, Philadelphia, PA. In 1998 he was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Minnesota Crafts Council. Permanent collections of his work include the Smithsonian Institution, Renwick Gallery, National Air and Space Museum, Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, Dundee, Scotland, and C.R.M. Russell Museum, Great Falls, Montana.
His recent work in hammered and molded copper vessels with sterling silver ornamentation was inspired by visits to Japan, where he became fascinated with kettles used in the Japanese tea ceremony.
