Product Description

Stoneware, glazes

H17 x W17.5cm

Trasnagh is an island off Whiterock on the lough shore of Strangford. The women I swim with have an aim to swim to this island during the summer, and although it seems close it is just over a mile out into the lough. The jar has a blue top and white base with a sprinkling of blue on the inside and doesn’t float straight, reminding us of the dangers of the lough's currents, cold temperature and jellyfish. It’s not simply all that is blue and beautiful on the surface of the water that needs to be considered when venturing out, but the dangers that lie beneath have to be respected too.

Meet the Artist

Tracey is a Northern Irish landscape ceramic artist who works with nature to make vessels that seek to connect us to our Irish shoreline. Tracey has lived and worked from the north coast of Ireland, Belfast and most recently, Strangford Lough. After having supported her family and seen them all through university, she took the opportunity to study Ceramics and Ulster University at the age of 50 and fulfil a lifelong dream of becoming a landscape artist. She completed her degree in 2021 obtaining a BA, Hon’s 1st Class. She now seeks to make vessels that can connect people to the Irish coastline, not just as an image but as a living representation of history, memory and locality, allowing the owner of the vessel to connect to Ireland, weather they are living here or further afield.
