Tara Squibb has lived on the Powis Castle estate for over 20 years, an idyllic location in the heart of Wales. Her work is influenced by natural phenomena and the surrounding landscapes, where she finds inspiration for form, texture and colour.
Tara works mainly with stoneware and porcelain, creating both wheel thrown and handbuilt forms.
