Perfectly imperfect - edges crumble while pitting, cracks and holes emerge.
Exploring the deteriorations that occur around and within us, the once solid forms that become ever more delicate and fragile, Tracy draws on the imagery of this journey and the intricate lace like structures that remain.
Creating her sculptures with kiln formed glass to highlight the beauty found within these states of erosion, Tracy manipulates and distorts the material, exploiting the tension that exists between the planned and the unexpected. Rejecting the qualities typically associated with glass, the transparency, vibrancy and shine, she gravitates towards a simple monochrome palette and opaque glass. Her complex pieces use layers and light to convey a striking aesthetic that is often overlooked.
