Tessy King is a ceramic artist based on the Northern Rivers in NSW working from her shed studio. King trained in Gold and Silversmithing as well as Ceramics as part of her Fine Arts studies at RMIT, which she now combines in the metal and enamel qualities of her pieces.

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, King considers how meaning is generated through the arrangement of objects and materials in larger installations and playful vignettes.
