White Glass Sculptures ‘Ethereality #189’ by Tracy Nicholls
‘Ethereality #189′ is one of Tracey Nicholls’ finest White Glass Sculptures.
Comprising a pair of opaque white mirror image panels upon a solid walnut plinth. Each panel has been been carefully hand cut into an intricate lace design which, when backlit, creates delicate shadows that dance across the walls.
This lattice of slumped glass fissures meanders and undulates, adding both interest and intrigue to the shadow dance.
Not only a beautiful piece of art but also able to play with light. Even in a dimly lit room, the chiaroscuroic effects it can produce are a marvel.
Although this piece is white, it can be made to order in any colour you wish. Please contact us before ordering if you wish to have it made in an alternative colour.

White Glass Sculptures 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.
