Tessa Morgan was born and raised in Washington DC and taught to throw as teenager. She had been drawing all her life, so it was second nature to carve designs into colored slip on her earliest pots. She majored in ceramics at Connecticut College and in 1983 set up a small studio in Woods Hole. In 1993 she received a BFA in illustration from Massachusetts College of Art and has since enjoyed a dual career as potter and illustrator. Her children’s books include Do Whales Ever…? and Do sharks Ever…?. and she has collaborated on various projects with scientists in Woods Hole. She opened the Flying Pig Pottery in 1999 and has been in many shows on the Cape. Her projects include a large tile installation at the Falmouth Public Library. She is a member of the Society of Cape Cod Craftsmen and Cape Cod Potters. She has been a featured artist in Cape Cod Life Arts magazine as well as Cape Cod Life and other publications.
