Self-taught Swedish contemporary artist Anne Felicie Nickels creates kiln-formed glass sculptures in her studio in Skane County, Sweden. She began her artistic career in 2016 and has since been selected by juries and balloting committees to exhibit her work in exhibitions across Europe. Additionally, she has permanent and temporary contracts with several European galleries and has been published in a number of books and magazines around the world.
Through years of research and practice, Nickels has gained an advanced understanding and mastery of glasswork processes and materials. To create her unique, vibrant glass pieces, Nickels administers surface and color manipulation through multiple firings and finishes with cold work. The works explore the themes of cultural heritage, identity, and most recently, female identity. Using the central motifs of faces and eyes, and decorative patterns, Nickels invites the viewer to meet and explore the soul of her subjects. Exploring and learning are important driving forces for the artist, and her fascination with science inspires her creative pursuits.
