George William Bell (UK)
George William Bell’s work is predominantly concerned with highlighting and exploring the nuanced moments where the material glass expresses its innate qualities. Working with processes of constructing and deconstructing line and form, he has moved into uncharted territory in search for the balance between the skill of the artisanal will and the self governing expressions of materiality. At the core of his exploration lies the idea that man's understanding of the world originates from its material dimensions. Combining techniques of glass making in a non-traditional format George William Bell’s works strike the observer as fragments of a story, forms presented through a prism that distorts but also focuses on a material reality beyond human presence.
William is currently studying MA Ceramics and Glass, Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and his work was exhibition in numerous museums and galleries. In April he is participating as a winner of Ung Svensk Form Award 2019 in the exhibition during Milan Design week.
