The fascination started over 15 years ago when the American artist George William Bell got acquainted with glass as a raw, malleable material. “I am just as fascinated with its possibilities and potential now. Its fluidity makes the material expression limitless.”

Spending long periods in England and Denmark, Bell has studied the craftsmanship of working with glass and has adapted a traditional Venetian glassmaking technique. By continuously reflecting on his creative process and challenging the boundaries of the craft, Bell has created a craft for himself that blurs the line between art and functionality. 

“I hope to continue to push the boundaries within my ancient craft, so it may remain relevant within the broader contemporary material culture.”
