“Over many years I have explored the boundaries between art and craft, art and function.
Honing my skills in a variety of mediums, working in clay and wood, and on cloth & paper.”

This is artwork that is intended to be used and lived with on a daily basis. Tessa draws inspiration from the natural world, informed by the energy that underpins substance and life. Each piece is part of a complex and chaotic pattern of existence.
