Furniture Maker, Sculptor, Educator
Jamie Herman is a furniture maker, sculptor, and teacher based out of Layton, New Jersey. His work features complicated geometries and precarious balancing acts, and he likes to present recognizable furniture forms in unexpected ways. Jamie is interested in exploring how material culture can influence our identities, and how participating in craft can change how we think. Brought up in Kentucky and Ohio, Jamie tried his hand at classical music, archaeology, and organic farming before finding his passion in craft. He trained in fine woodworking and furniture design at the Vermont Woodworking School and has participated in fellowships at the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship and the Peters Valley School of Craft. Jamie was recently awarded the 2021 John D. Mineck Furniture Fellowship.
