Artist Statement

After bouncing around the tri state area getting a little taste of the farm, lake, and city life, Tara Fermoyle currently resides in Fargo, ND.  Tara, a North Dakota State University Alumni, has an extensive background in interior design and has worked in the industry in different capacities for more than ten years, specializing in textiles and furnishings. Her experience in the design field has influenced her ceramic work in many ways. Currently, Tara works as a full time ceramic artist and interior designer in her newly opened design business, Fermie Studios.

Ceramics is her emphasis and passion; she enjoys creating both functional and sculptural work out of the medium and manipulates the clay in unique ways to create both interesting forms and unique surface designs. Tara creates ceramic work that is contemplative as well as functional. Curiosity and imperfection come with being human; it is with these ideas that she creates forms and surfaces that are beautifully irregular yet harmonious and pique the viewers’ curiosity.

“With a background in textile design, I have developed an appreciation for tactile surfaces, and through this I am acutely aware of different patterns and textures. When encountering these surfaces and I question how they were created, while at the same time my hand reaches out to explore. I strive to create objects that will evoke the same urge in the viewer to touch that I encounter on so many occasions.” – Tara

Tara shows her work both locally and regionally, she has participated in numerous exhibitions in the past and actively looks for opportunities to grow as an artist. She is involved with many local art organizations and is interested in community involvement centered around art and design.
