Tall Glass Sculpture ‘Osseous’ by Tracy Nicholls
Osseous is a tall glass sculpture that is strong yet graceful in its appearance. Tracy’s interpretation of disintegration cleverly captured within. Mindful and precise Tracy hand cuts her vision into the two glass panels. Fired multiple times, the resulting fusion, slumping and consequential undulations create the desired movement and depth.
Light brings this piece to life, shadows are then cast as the light dances through the fissures of the web. The height of this tall glass sculpture ensures that the accompanying silhouette, is ever changing throughout the day!
A delightful piece that would compliment any of those within Tracy Nicholls series’.
Colours – White ( made to order in any colour on request)

Tall 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.
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.
