Black Glass Wall Sculpture ‘Fragile Lace Series II’ by Tracy Nicholls
Fragile Lace Series II, a unique black glass wall sculpture comprising of three panels of opaque black glass.
Tracy’s interpretation of disintegration is skilfully captured within the center of this creative piece. With great precision, Tracy hand cuts her vision into the sheet glass panels. Multiple firing of the glass, ensures fusion, slumping, resulting in undulations within the glass. The desired movement and depth is thus formed.
Fragile lace is a solemn piece that will draw the eye. The central crevice exhibiting the slow separation of a solid form into two. A backlight to this black glass wall sculpture will, ignite this piece. Allowing the light to dance through the apertures of the web to produce shadows on surrounding walls.
Colours – Black (made to order in any colour on request)

Tracy has set up her studio in Kingston, Surrey. Tracy works predominantly with opaque glass to create her signature pieces.

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.
