Tara has been making things for as long as she can remember. She began working with clay twelve years ago in a community studio in Nashville, Tennessee. Her artistic education includes a B.F.A. in ceramics from Guilford College, membership in several artist cooperatives around the Southeast, and an apprenticeship with artist, Akira Satake. She currently lives and works as a potter in Asheville, North Carolina. When she isn't working in the studio, Tara loves to dance, hike with her dog on the Blue Ridge Parkway, garden, and write.
