"I bring concepts together in glass through color, form and texture, allowing the interaction of light to present different perspectives within each art piece. "
Elijah Kell's artistic journey with glass began at the age of ten as a creative outlet from his struggles with dyslexia. Captivated by the process and possibilities, he immersed himself in the art of glass and has been developing his craft through self-study and experimentation ever since.
