Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

A unique kiln formed glass sculpture of delicate white strings of glass, woven together with the finest copper wire.

Part of a series of pieces that originate from the study of diatoms which over time have evolved beautiful patterns of perforations in their exterior shell which creates a striking visual when seen under the microscope.

By using delicate lines of glass through many firings, these pieces are created in two halves. To complete each one, the matching halves are sewn together using thin lengths of metal or silk thread. This contrast of colour and material joins the fifteen points where the glass meets and forms a striking web through the centre of each sculpture, enhancing the inherent beauty of the glass.

This delicate opaque white glass art piece with a striking copper accent will make a delightful addition to any interior space.

Artist Profile

Born: 1969

Hometown: London

Based in: Surrey

Tracy Nicholls is a British artist working in kiln formed glass. Having discovered glass in 2003 at local evening classes, she progressed to UCA Farnham and completed her MA in Contemporary Craft – Glass, graduating with Distinction in 2009.

Tracy currently works from her studio in Surrey using predominantly opaque glass to create her intricate, sculptural pieces. Fascinated by erosion - of solid forms disintegrating over time, becoming ever more delicate and fragile while transforming into an absorbing lace like structure, she gravitates towards a simple monochrome colour palette, using light, shape and form to draw the viewer in.

In 2008 Tracy won ‘Best in Show’ at the British Glass Biennale and has continued to exhibit extensively in both the UK and Europe. In 2014 her work was included in Europe’s prestigious Coburg Glass Prize in Germany. It can be found in both private and public collections, including the National Museum of Scotland and the Marinha Grande Museum of Glass in Portugal.
