Tracey K. Young


Tracey K. Young earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Appalachian Center for Craft in December 2011. Her teapots have been exhibited in juried shows across the country, including The Big Fish, Small Pot International Teapot Competition, The Plight of the Pollinators, TACA 2012 Biennial Exhibit / Best of Tennessee Craft, and the Third Annual Art and Earth Celebration. Her work is also included in the 2013 "Art of Pollination" magazine.
In 2014 Tracey introduced a series bottles and small teapots featuring decal work inspired by WWI beekeeping magazine advertising graphics. She has also released a new line of plates and platters called Domestic Bliss which feature decal designs combining fashions and fonts of the Cold War. Although her ceramics are constructed with a variety of clay bodies and firing processes, she prefers working in porcelain. Tracey soda fires ceramics in her home built gas kiln, not far from her bee hives.
