Tea Mat by Tessa Layzelle. Each Tea Mat is a one of a kind piece and comes with a fabric index tag to make sure the receivers knows the story behind the fabrics used.
Tessa Layzelle makes one of a kind appliqué quilts approached as practical paintings, the works are the result of experimental and sustainable making; produced as one-off pieces or designed and made in limited editions. The quilts are made using self-taught traditional needle construction skills. Each piece is composed, cut, appliquéd, quilted and bound by hand. After sourcing end-of-line and salvaged linens and cottons, Tessa applies her distinctive use of colour with natural dyes and paints. The designs are composed by referring to mood boards created for each new work or collection, whilst playfully utilising the restrictions of small-batch materials. Tessa works from her home studio in Yorkshire, London.
End-of-line and salvaged linen and cotton dyed with natural materials. For example onions.
16 cm x 22 cm (perfect size for two tea cups)
