Art Glass Orbs ‘Serendipity’ by Tracy Nicholls
Tracy Nicholls delights with these monochrome art glass orbs. ‘Serendipity’ exhibits precisely its definition. The occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way. The orbs are made from four lost wax cast hemispheres. Tracy’s signature opaque black glass forms the orbs. Found within their interior, blacks greys and whites have been given their own artistic license. A magnetic ring holds the art glass orbs together to form a monochromatic sphere. Concealing the interior void.
Serendipity is an interesting, thought probing piece that will open many conversations. The subtle way in which the orbs are placed, will keep the admirer thinking!
Colours – Black exterior with white/black/grey interiors

Art Glass Orbs Artist
British Glass artist Tracy Nicholls discovered glass during evening classes she attended in 2003. Perusing her interest in glass, Tracy went on to complete an MA in Contemporary Craft- Glass, at UCA Farnham. Graduating with Distinction in 2009.
Tracy has set up her studio in Kingston, Surrey. Tracy works predominantly with opaque glass to create her signature pieces. Intrigued by the nature of erosion, Tracy studies the disintegration of solid forms over time. Observing the transition of the ever more delicate and fragile form. Subsequently transforming into an absorbing, lace-like structure. Simplicity is the key to her work and favours the monochrome colour palette, using light, shape and form to capture the eye.
In 2008 Tracy won, ‘Best in Show’ at the British Glass Biennale. In 2014 her work was included in Europe’s prestigious Coburg Glass Prize in Germany. Tracy’s Sculptures are present in many exhibitions throughout Europe and the UK. Her work can be found in both private and public collections, including the National Museum of Scotland and the Marinha Grande Museum of Glass in Portugal.
