Tessa Wolfe-Murray

Tessa trained in Ceramics at Goldsmiths College, London 1981-84. On leaving college she developed a method of sawdust firing for surfaces that were high fired and internally glazed making it possible for them to hold water. Her vessel ranges are both hand-built and slip-cast, sculptural in form but always functional.

 

Inspiration for decoration is distilled from a process that begins with photographs taken whilst travelling – rock formations, beach debris, horizons, buildings and their surfaces, museum artefacts. Forms and contours are often elliptical and the addition of coloured slips and the smoke marks from a sawdust firing help to create a three-dimensional quality of depth. Other surfaces are an interplay of incised lines on vessels that have been textured, built up, impressed or distorted. A hint of colour comes from metal oxides mixed into clay and glazes.

 

Tessa has exhibited worldwide. Her work is held in many collections worldwide.
