Category Ceramicist

Region London

Tessa Eastman is an award-winning British ceramic artist with over twenty years’ experience of working with clay. Her meticulously hand-built sculptures appear curiously alive with movement. While creating she looks for differences such as soft and hard, order and chaos, geometry and irregularity. Tessa says: ’I aim to fix ungraspable states such as fleeting cloud formations, which represent the ideal and the perishable, doom and fantasy’. She draws inspiration from natural phenomena as seen through a microscope, exploring the strangeness of growth where systems flow and digress.
