tucked away in the hills of east los angeles lives british artist and designer tracy wilkinson. born in Yorkshire, england tracy is a multi-media artist and the founder of tw workshop, a collection of handmade ceramics, one of a kind furniture, home accessories, and perfectly styled soft cotton t-shirts. She lives and works in the Mount Washington neighborhood, northeast of downtown L.A. and continues to be a fashion consultant for companies worldwide, having studied at the Royal College of Art, earning a Masters degree in Fashion and Textile design. luckily for us, L.A.-based photographer Laure Joliet dropped in to visit Tracy and photograph her beautifully eclectic california home, which is filled with Tracy’s artwork, including her one-of-a-kind pieces made of stoneware and handweaving. tracy’s hosting a holiday sale this weekend, saturday december 3 from 10a-5p (along with prints from laure’s collection) so be sure and stop by if you’re in the L.A. area.

The main part of tracy’s very unique southern california home was built in 1946 and was later added onto in 1954. she bought the home from the wife of the original owner, a mason, who built the house — which makes perfect sense since it’s all made of cinder brick. The glass in the ornate stone fireplace wall came from the Bel Air Glass fire and there’s a Luau pit on the patio. The wall in the bedroom was left after tracy removed mirrored tiles and she was going to rip it out but then loved how it looks like a Japanese painting, so kept it. She lived here for five years and hasn’t changed much, apart from putting in white oak floors. let’s have a look!
