Tara Squibb has lived on the Powis Castle estate for over 20 years, an idyllic, quite remote location in the heart of Wales. Tara is inspired and influenced by the surrounding landscapes, nature and the constantly changing seasons and weather conditions, where she continually finds inspiration for form, texture and colour. You can go out and look at exactly the same view 7 days a week, but each time it will be very different according to the weather and light conditions.
Her current range of work is inspired by an interest in geology and sedimentary erosion, aiming to capture a snapshot of seeming movement that has been created by the forces of the weather such as the rain or the wind and their effects on nature’s surfaces, reminding us of the power of the weather which sometimes goes by barely noticed or on occasion can leave behind shocking evidence of its destructive forces.
This series is based on sedimentary erosion, aiming to capture a snapshot of seeming movement created by water or the wind and its effects on surfaces. Wheel thrown porcelain and stoneware forms are enhanced with bold coloured engobes to highlight the undulating surfaces created in nature.
