In his body of work, Jamie Harris captures the innate way glass transmits, reflects, and absorbs color. Known for his installation work, his Mods provide bright and loud movements of color. For his sensational Infusion Panels, he uses the process of glass melting to control the outcome of the design. Featuring veiled layers of color, these captivating works resemble modern paintings and express similar qualities as works by Morris Louis or Helen Frankelthaler. With his mirror pieces, he creates tension by deflating some forms and slashing the surface of others. The mirror surfaces create sophisticated and mysterious forms that play off their surroundings as they reflect distortions and cast shadows. Throughout of all his work, he remains committed to the material.
Jamie Harris is an artist and designer working out of his studio in Brooklyn, NY. His work is distinguished by his unique and painterly use of color and design. After earning a BA in Comparative Literature from Brown University, he went on to study glass at Pilchuck Glass School, Rhode Island School of Design, Fenland School of Crafts, Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, and The Studio at Corning Museum of Glass. Since his debut at Vetri in 2002, his career has grown exponentially. His work has been published in New Glass Review, featured in American Craft, and is held in private and public collections internationally.
