Jonathan Harris is an innovative and creative second-generation designer/glassmaker who continues to experiment with new techniques. For more than 35 years, he has developed and refined a wide variety of techniques to combine a fascination with studio glassmaking, technology and graphic arts. His work is a fusion of graphic imagery – sometimes elaborate and figurative, with the molten fluidity of hot glass, creating both contemporary and classical works.
He introduced the use of 24ct gold and sterling silver leaf into his designs in 1992 in Harrods and Liberty of London with tremendous success.
In 1999, his wife Alison and their small team of highly skilled Artisans, set up a studio, located at the Coalport China Museum in the Ironbridge Gorge, which provides the perfect haven for their progression of combining innovation and technology with ancient craftsmanship, which provokes an exciting combination.
