White Opaque Glass Sculpture ‘Ethereality #6’ By Tracy Nicholls
Tracy Nicholls opaque white glass sculpture Etherality #6 is an arresting piece. Her vision of disintegration cleverly captured. Within this piece, Tracy has meticulously hand cut a half moon like design into the two glass panels. Fired multiple times, the resulting fusion, slumping and consequential undulations create the desired movement and depth. Complemented by the shadows cast as the light dances through the fissure of the web.
Etherality #6 is a unique white opaque glass sculpture which conveys the slow internal weakening of a solid form, wonderfully. Beautifully held on a solid walnut base.
Etherality #6 is part of the Etherality series.
Colours – White ( made to order in any colour on request)
White Opaque Glass Sculpture Artist

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.
