Tessy M King
Tessy King — 'Loop' Sculptural Vase I
A unique and colourful handbuilt clay body vessel with handles, finished with a warm glaze and lustre by Tessy King.
Tessy M King is a Melbourne based artist whose practice is largely focused on ceramics. The vessel is the object central to her current work, through which she examines the meeting point of sculpture and domestic ware. Within her practice more broadly, she considers how meaning is generated through the arrangement of objects and materials in larger installations and playful vignettes, exploring relationships of form and function.
Tessy completed a Bachelor of Fine Art with first class honours at RMIT in 2016. Recent exhibitions include 'Sun Room' 2017 at Craft Victoria, 'Contemporary pottery' at Mailbox Art Space, 'Feminographies' at Seventh Gallery and 'Viewing Zone' at C3. Tessy was a finalist in Fresh!, 2016 and The Victorian Craft Awards, 2017.
