Tessy King PROFILE
by BRÆR Studio·
Tessy is an artist who lives and works on Yaegl Country, in the Clarence Valley of the Northern Rivers.
She makes sculptural ceramic vessels in her shed studio. She creates her work with a variety of clays, layered glazes, vitreous enamels and lustres to investigate materials and processes within her practice.
"The majority of my works are highly decorative, laboriously hand-built vases for flowers and the occasional sculpture hinting at the vessel form. Many kiln firings are involved in achieving the layered and luminous surfaces of my pots. I relish the opportunity to see these works in collaboration with Braer flowers, like the perfect icing on top."
Goodnight Little Arlo by Woody Guthrie (for my baby Roly), lots of these sorts of lyrics on repeat in our house for the last year.
Multiple cups of tea a day. I have a special collection of mugs by friends that I love to rotate through. I love the connection with the other makers while I enjoy a moment with my tea.
If you were a flower….
Possibly a bit daggy but I have so many cute memories involving frangipani flowers and trees, so a frangipani. Just the smell alone transports me all over the place and times.
