About the Artist

Ellen George (Vancouver) received a 2009 GAP to attend the BECon 2009 Conference, and Bullseye Glass Factory classes and lectures given by leading international glass artists. Bullseye Glass has fabricated Ellen’s large-scale designs, with Ellen working alongside their lead technicians. This opportunity will give Ellen hands-on experience in execution of artworks in glass. Rob Wilcox writes “Ellen George makes small bright sculptures from polymer clay. Sometimes they connect into larger assemblages. Her work is delightfully minimal and oddly happy, maintaining a subtle lightness and maybe the idea that the shapes came from nature’s stones and plantlife.”

Ellen also received a 2002 GAP.
