Master of Craft
Jamie Harris has been working with glass for almost 15 years—and he's only 30. After starting in high school with simple bowls and goblets, Harris moved on to Brown University and apprenticeships with several glassmakers in Providence. He now combines the technique he learned—a Venetian method from the thirties in which separate bands of glass are joined together—with colors inspired by Rothko and Pollock paintings. The result is a striking collection of striped and spotted vases in contrasting tones, abstract wall panels, and our favorite: the ethereal off-round orbs.
