the awesomeness that is tessa gawith

this is my new friend Tessa Gawith. she is amazing. she makes things. she makes things happen. calmly. if it wasn't for tessa i would never have had all my nice new porcelain things ready for the design indaba. i have nice memories of me and her up and down palmer road between our studios, carrying porcelain slip and clay and cups and bowls and whatnots. 
i learned that to make things in clay is a looooooong process, not like jewellery, and that you need to "time manage" properly if you have a deadline. there are many processes and each step takes time... 
i'm not that great at sticking to time frames, but tessa draw me a time schedule, it made things easy.
thanks tessa!!!!!, i'm learning so much from you and it makes me sooper happy!!!!!!
