George William Bell
George William Bell’s work stands on the fine line between fine art, craft and design with material investigation and innovation at its core. Based on the Island of Bornholm, Denmark, Bell’s 7.5 Series focuses on materiality and movement, combined with a minimalist Nordic aesthetic. This collection of functional objects harness the innate, fluid properties of glass, combining craft tradition with design innovation.
Bell’s work has been exhibited widely, featuring in several high profile international exhibitions including New Glass Now, at Corning Museum of Glass (New York), The European Award for Applied Arts (Mons, Belgium) as well as Glass is Tomorrows touring exhibition (Stockholm, Milan, London) amongst others. He has received awards from Danske Kunsthåndværkere & Designere, Ung Svensk Form, and the Stanislav Libensky Award. He has a Masters Degree from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Art and currently lives and works in Bornholm, Denmark.
