About Tarragon Smith
'Both my reduction-fired celadon jars and my soft fired amphora are assembled from two or more pieces, a connecting thread. It is a mode of working I enjoy, and it is a mode of working that usually makes for lively work.'
'The earthenware amphora, amphorae, are part of an ongoing series called Life on the Med. A meditation on migration on the Mediterranean Sea, history, and the commodification of people. They are assembled wet on the wheel and require a bit of dexterity to make.'
Tarragon Smith is a UK-based Canadian ceramic artist. He received a BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, and an MFA from Central Saint Martins.
'I did much of my learning on the job at Turning Earth. At this institution I held a position of technician and teacher and most recently I've taught at at Kiln Cambridge.'
'My studio abuts a tidal river and from thence I find the clay which goes into many of my glazes. This clay, wild clay as they like to say, has proved fruitful to my work. My other main glaze ingredient comes from my neighbours fireplace.'
