Tracey Johnston 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 fulfilled 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, whether they are living here or further afield.
