Ankündigung   Hello Spring and hello swarm season. April and May are big swarm months here in Tennessee. I've been setting bait hives up this year throughout our property and even at my Etsy partner's animal sanctuary. With the high cost of replacing winter colony losses, I'm attempting to bring the swarms to me this year. (My own colonies seem to like swarming 60 feet up!).

This is perfect time to give a little gift of encouragement, no matter what the experience level! Perhaps cheer up a beekeeper who experienced losses this winter? Or surprise that new beekeeper so you are sure to become a favored honey customer.

My primary Etsy shop work has been handmade slip cast vintage bottles for your home. Why vintage? It takes us back to a time when honeybees were, well, everywhere! Recently, I have added frames as an option for my trivets. It was a customer request and I really like how they pretty up the beekeeping message.
Plates are new item, added in February.

I currently partner with two shops showcasing my retro and humorous beekeeping themed graphics (even a pollinator series) on their pins, buttons, magnets, mirrors. AND...drum roll...pill/trinket boxes. (I'm thinking of friends opening their trinket boxes to find honeybee friendly seeds to plant.) Great ways to brighten a beekeepers day...especially those new "beeks".
Just visit https://www.etsy.com/shop/Thefaerywatcher?ref=shop_sugg§ion_id=22697163
These make great "thinking of you and your bees" gifts.

Having problems finding my buttons? Convo me and I will happily link you to my latest designs.

Please visit my website to see all the galleries and shops throughout the south that feature a variety of my work, including my vintage bottles. http://www.finecrafts.org/Young/Tracey.htm

I've eyed this shop for a long time and I'm so glad I finally ordered these bottles as gifts. They are the chubbiest, quirkiest pieces! Beautiful glaze colors and cool designs for bee-lovers and others.

Profil des Shops

My name is Tracey Young. I earned a BFA from the Appalachian Center for Craft in December 2011 and began keeping bees in April 2012.

I share my studio and kiln yard with my husband, two champion mousers, the spirits of two dobermans and thousands of bees.

Influenced by a 75% colony loss in the Spring of 2015, I began slip casting pint size vintage milk bottles adding iron based decals.

I learned that milk containers, used for advertising in troubled times; from victory slogans in World War II, to finding missing children in the 1980’s, would be the perfect canvas for me to communicate the plight of honeybees.

Although I am primarily a teapot hand-builder, these slip cast milk bottles have become my main body of work for 2016-17. As a second career potter, I spent my younger years as a lady draftsman for the glass machine and then plastic container industry. Combining past and present job experience, along with first hand knowledge of an apiary, brings me to this new, creative niche.

Buy a milk bottle (or two). Plant wildflowers. Save the bees.
