Artist of the month

Faringdon Information Centre would like to welcome Tracy Barker as the artist of the month for April. Tracy first discovered the delights of sea glass early in 2020 whilst visiting a friend in Cornwall. Since then, she has managed to amass a rather impressive collection of pieces of broken bottles and suchlike which have somehow found their way into the sea. After decades of being pounded, churned, tumbled and smoothed by the sea and sand, each piece of glass she uses in her creations happened one day to end up on the shore at her feet. During the first lockdown of 2020, Tracy turned her newfound passion into creating one-of-a kind art and sterling silver jewellery and Seaberry Moon was born! As time went on, she created other gifts – sun-catchers, candle holders, wine-glass charms, small Christmas trees and bookmarks to name a few. To see Tracy’s wonderful creations please pop into the Information Centre from 9am to 12pm Monday to Friday and 9:30am to 1pm on Saturdays.
