About the work:
Shell Sculpture, Sculpture in Glazed Stoneware with Lustre by Tessy King.
This piece is part of Talismans, Rafts, Mementos: a group exhibition showcasing the work of the entire community of Modern Times artists. Throughout 2020 artists used their practice to make sense of what was happening, and this show celebrates this rich vein of creative output.
“These works were made during and just prior to lockdowns in Victoria. Making in my home studio meant I could stay connected to my sense of ‘normal‘ while really allowing for celebration of what it means to spend so much time at home. These sculptures are based loosely on domestic objects that I have found to be enriching during this time,” says Tessy.
About the Artist:
Tessy King is a ceramic artist currently based on the Bellarine Peninsula in Victoria. 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.
