We are very into these new arrivals from Tegan Emerson that make us think of ancient spaces we would discover on international adventures or those precious vintage finds! Her glazes are so textural and layered, CAN'T GET ENOUGH!

ABOUT THE MAKER
Tegan Emerson is a Sydney-born artist currently based in Berlin, Germany.
Tegan is a ceramic artist, primarily working with hand-building, using a coiling
technique and bringing to life the surface of the clay with textures and glazes.
The highly textured surfaces of Tegan’s work are inspired by organic coral architecture and deep-sea life, as well as the dualism of build-up and erosion. The ceramics as a result are luxuriously tactile to touch, engaging the senses of the user and becoming a grounding ritual object. Esoteric and occult themes are also an inspiration for her work. Embracing the unknown and weird, and using world-building as a tool for learning about oneself.
Alongside making ceramics Tegan is also interested in the vibrant ceramic community around her. In 2021, she was a co-founder and co-curator of the exhibition Vessels: New Berlin Crafts and in 2022 she curated a selection of ceramics for the third edition of Berlin exhibition Hot Mess.
