Tracy Shea has been making pottery since 1982. "I fell in love with clay immediately in my youth, and this memory is part of what motivates my love of teaching people of all ages about such a 'magic' medium." Tracy also has a background in textile silk screening and mail order catalog production. She is inspired by service and celebration, form and function, the beauty of nature, lovely homes and intimate gatherings of family and friends. "I appreciate the opportunity to make special, useful pottery that inspires beauty at home, and service and celebration at the table every day."
