2013 Master Potter Workshop
Tara Wilson* - Quiet Pots
Nationally acclaimed potter Tara Wilson will demonstrate wheel thrown shapes and surface treatments for all types of firing including reduction, soda/salt and wood firing.
November 1-3, 2-03
Tara Wilson is a studio potter living in Montana City, Montana. She received a BFA from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville in 2000 and an MFA degree from the University of Florida in 2003. She has been a resident artist at The Archie Bray Foundation and The Red Lodge Clay Center. Tara fires in wood and soda atmospheric kilns. In this workshop, she will demonstrate her gestural forms and surface treatments that have brought her national recognition and acclaim.
Quiet pots initially speak softly yet reveal complexity in both form and surface through continued investigation and use. Embodied in my atmospheric fired vessels is the serenity that I experience by surrounding myself on a daily basis with a rich natural environment.
While the surfaces of the vessels represent the natural world, the forms often relate to the figure. Pottery’s inherent relationship to the figure is accentuated in my gestural forms. The dialog between the forms changes as the pieces are used.
The simple things in life are often the most important, the great outdoors, the company of my dog, and the beauty of making pots on a daily basis. My pots speak of my passions, while at the same time allowing the user to recognize the important things in their own lives.
