Tamar Rose's range of contemporary porcelain is born of a fascination with dramatic forms - their textures, movement, contrasts and silhouettes.
She has always felt compelled to create in three dimensions - this has included forays into other mediums such as metal, fabric and willow. Ultimately though, the plasticity and malleability of clay offers the most flexible material in which to realise her visions.
Clay is her sketch book.
Each piece or collection of pieces is unique and part of her journey as a maker.
Tamar's constantly evolving as a designer/maker, this has brought her from the Harrow tradition of thrown functional ceramics to this current range of decorative porcelain and more recently a range based on victorian natural history specimens
Having completed a degree at Harrow, she has been involved in setting up a community studio, been a member of the Sussex Guild, exhibited at "the ceramic house" as part of the open houses in Brighton also in Shoreham, Seaford and Worthing, and has sold work in Europe and the United States.
work can also be found in a selection of galleries.
Tamar currently works as an artist in residence in a number of schools and teaches ceramics to adults.
She works in porcelain paper-clay because its translucent, almost ethereal quality lends itself so well to the forms she creates, using a combination of hand building techniques- rolling, impressing, sprigging and moulding.
The work is fired to a high temperature giving it amazing strength, often with a final lustre glaze completing the alchemy.
