After 20 years curating exhibitions, Tracey began investing her creative energy in clay.
Inspired by Delftware she has been experimenting with cobalt and figurative detail to emulate pots from the C17th. More recently she has been playing with layers of glaze and lustres to create less controlled finishes.
To balance her work on the wheel she also feels the clay by creating egg and seed-like forms. These have no purpose other than the pleasure of the touch and are initially finished to a marble-like state by burnishing.
