Potter Traci Witham has joined Gallery 302 in Bridgton. Contributed photo

Gallery 302, located at 112 Main St. in Bridgton, recently welcomed potter Traci Witham to its cooperative gallery. Witham says that growing up in a small upstate New York town really set her roots in the wonders of nature. Her grandmother was an inspirational part of allowing her heart to grow and her love of nature to blossom, according to a news release from the gallery.

Witham has always appreciated the beauty and expression found in works of art. She studied photography, line drawing, and charcoal sketching at the University of Maine.
The course of life changes often, and Witham went on to work a successful career in retail management. Her heart called her back to the world of art so in 2015, she started a journey learning to specialize in traditional hand thrown pottery. Following her bliss, and maybe a few little pushes from her family, she left a corporate career in 2021 to build a home studio.

Witham now focuses full time on creating beautiful forms, accentuated by unique glaze combinations. Her art is made to be both visually appreciated and functional.

She lives in beautiful Waterford with her long-term partner, two dogs, 20 chickens, and a rescue cat. They have four children in a blended family and their first grandchild is on the way.
