By Tara Shackell

Tara Shackell is a ceramicist based in Melbourne, Australia. Thrown on the wheel or hand-built, Tara’s stoneware and porcelain pieces explore the relationship between form and surface, and the subtle interactions which can occur between the clays and glazes. Her current work focuses on creating simple, functional objects that express materiality, quietness and space. Tara is interested in the relationship of objects to one another, the spaces between things and the way that this affects the way we see the objects both as a group and individually.
