Tracy was educated through the Irish language and her love of Ireland’s heritage is central to this collection. Her designs often feature an innovative use of light inspired by the prehistoric monument at Newgrange, Co. Meath in Ireland that was constructed between 3000 and 2500 BC. It is aligned with the rising sun and once a year, on the Winter Solstice (the shortest day of the year), light floods the chamber of Newgrange to spectacular effect. Newgrange also showcases some wonderful early artwork with Celtic Spirals etched into large rocks at the front of the monument. These pieces attempt to capture the magic and importance of Newgrange as a national Irish treasure.
