Two or three large ceramic vessels made from glazed stoneware and lustre with accompanying props.
Tessy King is a Melbourne based artist who works predominantly with ceramics. She studied Fine Art at RMIT University and graduated with First Class Honours in 2016. The vessel is the object central to her current work through which she examines the point of convergence of sculpture and domestic ware.
Within her arts practice more broadly, Tessy considers how meaning is generated through the arrangement of objects and materials in larger installations and playful vignettes. Through this engagement with craft practices Tessy questions the dichotomy of historical value attributed to fine art objects.
