Ceramics Tracey


After having raised my family I began my degree at Ulster University and graduated 2021 with BA Hons. (1st Class) speciality Ceramics. I describe myself as a landscape artist with a specific interest of the Ulster Coastline. Presently living in Co Down, where I have a studio by a beautiful 1900 red brick house but my home is Castlerock Co Londonderry. I am a wild swimmer and try to swim most days all the year round.


I am a ceramic artist with an interest in landscape and an anthropological approach to research. I seek to make work that reflects the Ulster coastline and our emotional need to walk its shores and swim its waters. My most recent works, sometimes thrown from local clay, respond to sites on the west coast of Strangford Lough. The pandemic has brought me to join a community of local wild swimmers. Swimming with these women has provided an insight into the importance of these liminal spaces, between earth and water, in shaping our notions of place and belonging. Interactions with the other swimmers has fuelled and inspired me to produce a body of work which I hope speaks of life, nature, mental health and survival.

I make wedding jars. Two halves joined together to make a whole moon jar, and fired with a white tin glaze. The couples names, date and logo can then be added using a permanent decal and lustre rim and hearts. A sample can be seen here :- https://www.instagram.com/p/COx7KqehdfS/. Any large or small decorative jars or lamps.
