One of her goals is to make a better cup each day.

Tara's Bio:

Tara Wilson was captivated by clay as a high school student in Clyde, Ohio. During her undergraduate studies in Tennessee, she became fascinated with the wood-firing process. After receiving an MFA from the University of Florida, Tara moved west for a residency at The Archie Bray Foundation and her love for the rugged beauty of Montana’s diverse landscape was awakened – from the sweeping planes to the rugged mountains. These passions continue to drive her artistic endeavors today as she produces woodfired pottery in her studio near Helena, Montana. The soft forms of her woodfired vessels often relate to the figure while the surfaces are inspired by her natural surroundings.
