Tracy Bradford started working with clay in the 1980’s while attending the Academy of Art in San Francisco. A few years later, she and her husband, Eric, were settled on the coast of Maine and trying to move on from bartending and waitressing work. Eric started a lobster business and Tracy decided to try working with clay again.
With her own potter’s wheel and a small glass kiln, she was fired up. She took an 8 week ceramics class where she learned how to make bowls and cylinders. Between classes she’d do more pottery at home, learning how to fire pots through lots of trial and error.
After about a year of practice, she began producing consistently high quality pieces. She continues to learn and refine her techniques year after year. All her pots are lead-free, dishwasher, oven and microwave safe.
