Paul Harrie's work is perfect - or he doesn't send it out. His work reveals an interest in classical form, contemporary design and bright clean colors. Pieces are hand blown, then cut, and polished, with considerable skill and attention to detail.
Hattie, born in North Dakota, searches to capture the pristine quality of new snow and the clear icy light of the winter of his childhood. He wants to make something that gives the impressions of opening up, peering into the ice, of looking into a geode.
Paul has had his own studio in Southern California since 1980. He taught for several years as glass instructor at the Long Beach and Northridge campuses of the California State University and as assistant glass instructor at UCLA.
Paul's work is exhibited in galleries all over North America. His work has also been exhibited at the Nelson Art Museum in Kansas City and the Royal Art Gallery in Koyoto, Japan. In 1980 and 1981 his work was selected for publication in the Corning Museum of Glass' New Glass Review 2.
