Introduction
Larry Bell attended the Chouinard School of Art in Los Angeles from 1957 to 1959, but discovered his affinity for glass art while working in a frame shop. He experimented with glass scraps and studied the reflection and transmittal of light through glass. He created shadow boxes and sculptures that would become known as glass "Cubes." Bell uses commercial plating processes to create tinted and reflective glass and continues to be consistent in his construction of geometric glass sculptures and installations.
