Carl Powell is a National Endowment for the Arts recipient whose works have been displayed in the Corning Museum of Glass, New Glass Review, and the Americans in Glass national exhibition.

From residential stained glass projects to complete glass environments for public buildings, Powell’s hand-ground and polished thick, clear bevels have transformed the art of glass into a visually kinetic experience. These unique, multi-faceted shapes form prismatic optical illusions of movement, surprising the viewer with an invitation for a closer inspection.
