About Tamsin van Essen

Tamsin van Essen is a ceramic designer living and working in London. A graduate of Central Saint Martins and the Royal College of Art, she specialises in conceptual design and has recently been using the medium of ceramics to explore scientific, medical and social historic themes. Material experimentation is a strong characteristic of her work, probing how the material qualities of ceramics can be altered through unusual additions, and creative intervention into standard industrial and craft production processes. Her work sits at the interface between art and design, with one-off collectables and conversation pieces.
