Tracie Hervy’s work is inspired by the simplicity of prehistoric vessels. All superfluities are stripped away. The surface reveals how it came into being. It doesn't strive for a machine like perfection...one exactly like the other. Its goals are more humanistic. Each piece is a new discovery. They are part of the same family, generated from a similar idea, but each one attempting to explore a new possibility.
Tracie Hervy's education in ceramics began in the studios of Greenwich House Pottery in NYC. She later studied at the Rhode Island School of Design where she received an MFA in ceramics.
