Chris Stell's Profile

About

I have been involved in art since childhood. Growing up I experimented with multiple mediums including illustration, copper enameling, silk screening, macramé, weaving, pottery, stained glass, wire and beaded jewelry. I came to San Diego in 1972 and attended San Diego State where I received a BA in advertising art. I have been a graphic designer/art director since then. In 1999 I combined all of my past art experiences and incorporated them into my glasswork. The range of crafts and graphic design, along with some imagination, all work together to give me what I feel is a very unique style. I utilize my drawing skills to freehand etch illustrations out of the surface of the dichroic glass using a variety of techniques before the glass is fired. My creations include jewelry, watches, belts, buttons, wall art, dishes, ornaments and free-standing sculptures. I also draw pattern masters for CBS (Coatings by Sandberg), ArtGlassSupplies.com…
