In september 2009 I had my first solo exhibition at Pieces of Eight gallery in north fitzroy titled fabrication. Melanine Katsalitis the gallery owner wrote the following press release about the show: Tessa Blazey creates intimate sci-fi worlds and geometric wearables through a series of new jewellery pieces. The collection is highly sculptural and unified by its common conceptual origins- Blazey’s fascination with mineral specimens, their formal geometries and structures. In this body of work which is exclusive to Pieces of Eight Gallery, Blazey invites us to marvel and delight in the beautiful forms fabricated by both geological forces as well as the artist’s hand.
