Coming from a craft-orientated background from an early age, G. William Bell was exposed to numerous working practices, throwing on the potter's wheel, casting metal jewellry and figurines, etc. with his potter's father. His interest and excitement in creating three-dimensional objects have stayed with him to this day. He completed a BA Honours Degree at Bath Spa University in Three Dimensional Design with Ceramics as a specialty. After graduating, he discovered his true calling in glass and was employed by Bath Aqua Glass. He quickly moved from assistant to the maker, trainee to trainer, coaching other glassblowers as well as the general public, while continuing to experiment, creating digital drawings, etchings, and hot sculpted glass objects. During the Spring of 2012, he was the glassblower in residence at Kitengela Hot glass in Kenya. Since 2014 he has been working towards a BA Honours degree in Glass at KADK, Bornholm, Denmark. In March 2015 he was asked to represent KADK at the R.C.A., taking part in a week-long workshop for Glass is Tomorrow called Makers x Makers, the products of which are now on a touring exhibition around Europe. G.William finds much of his inspiration through hot glass processes as well as nature, microbiology, and textiles. He is fascinated with the idea of building on the traditional Venetian style of cane work in an attempt to create something more expressive, organic, and personal.
