Tessa Reed – Cape Breton Centre for Craft

Tessa Reed

Tessa Reed (Tessaramics) is a potter who is obsessed with process, and focused on function. From the prairies of Saskatchewan, to the high rises of Vancouver, and finally to beautiful Nova Scotia, she has always found the best place to be is behind a pottery wheel. Her signature style features cartoon-looking cats and fantastical creatures. She believes that her work should be in use, and often will include decoration on the interior or bottom of a piece, necessitating interaction for the full experience of the work.
