Black Opaque Glass Sculpture ‘Fragile Lace’ by Tracy Nicholls
Fragile Lace is a unique black opaque glass sculpture. Tracy’s interpretation of disintegration cleverly captured within every corner of this creative piece. With great precision Tracy hand cuts her vision into two glass panels. Multiple firing of the glass, ensures fusion, slumping and consequential undulations within the glass. Resulting in the desired movement and depth.
Fragile lace is a solemn piece that will draw the eye. Light, whether natural or artificial will bring this piece to life, with silhouette’s cast as the light dances through the fissures of the web.
Fragile Lace is a black opaque glass sculpture, held beautifully upon a solid walnut base.
An engaging piece that would compliment any of those within Tracy Nicholls series’.
Colours – Black ( made to order in any colour on request)
Black Opaque Glass Sculpture 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.
