Tegan Jane Empson - Biography


Born in Perth in 1975, Tegan completed a BA (Art), majoring in Ceramics and Glass from Curtin University in 1995.


In 1997 Tegan moved to Adelaide, South Australia to undergo the two year design associateship within the glass studio at JamFactory Craft and Design Centre.


From 1999 onwards she has established her own practice as a glass designer/maker focusing on limited edition production glass, commissions and work for exhibition.


In 2005 Tegan underwent a year of fulltime study at the South Australian School of Art within the University of South Australia. This year of intensive research resulted in a Bachelor of Visual Art (Honours 1st class). The work that has continued to develop from this period of research has been positively received.


Now the main focus of her practice is to build upon her profile as an exhibiting artist both in Australia and overseas - having shown in the UK, USA, Singapore, New Zealand and most recently Shanghai, China. 


An integral part of Tegan's practice is continuing to design and make limited edition production glass for a small number of select galleries across Australia.
