Tessa Hoenig is a third–year student at Colorado State University majoring pottery and minoring in Spanish. She is a Fort Collins native, a lover of Big Al’s Burgers, and a barista at Morgan's Grind. I met Tessa while taking an elective art class two years ago, and was enamored by her talent and goofy personality. Her clothes are inevitably always covered in clay, and she consistently has five projects she should be working on. She does all of this with a smile on her face. The following photos were taken between Sept. 26 and Sept. 30, 2018.
