Jake Zollie Harper is a glassblower based in Southtown, San Antonio. Using traditional methodology as a jumping-off point, Harper explores the fundamental, organic modalities of his medium, creating work that blurs the division between art and craft. His objects often masquerade as functional, belying their formal complexity. Since 2008 he has exhibited widely, including such venues as Blue Star, Blue Star Lab, David Shelton Gallery, Flight Gallery, Justice Works and Lone Star Studios (San Antonio), and Box 13 (Houston). After apprenticing and traveling extensively throughout the US to further his craft, in 2009, Harper established Zollie Glass Studio, which functions as a workspace, classroom and gallery.
