Each bright and colorful piece is intended to accurately represent its living counterpart on a macro scale, bringing to light the beauty that exists within the micro scale of nature. Both delicate and monumental, these one-of-a-kind sculptures convey the complexity of their living counterparts, engaging the viewers in new ways of looking at nature through the fragility of glass art. Small plants, although minuscule in comparison to our human-sized way of existing, are overwhelmingly perplexing when held inches away from one’s face. Most people will seldom grasp this seemingly secret perception of existence. “When I scale life forms up to be larger than a person, they can be observed with this perspective from across a room due to the overwhelming physical presence they command. It is my hope that when people admire my large-scale renderings, they become curious and captivated by the hints of realism I incorporate into my designs. I encourage people to attempt to observe with the same eyes through which I humbly and graciously experience our natural world,” stated Jason.

Hundreds of thousands of people from all walks of life attend Gamrath’ s exhibitions. People from all over the country and the world at large come to experience the powerful emotion felt and absorbed when face-to-face with one of his original, seemingly alive creations in person. “If a piece of art had a soul, I would expect it to reside in a Gamrath”, stated Executive Director Christine Hobart.

ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Jason Gamrath is a renowned glass sculptor and blower, living and working out of Seattle, WA. His fascination with glass began when he was 15 and by age 16, he started working in glass and pursuing his career in art. After building his skills at Pratt Fine Arts as a high school student, Jason would end up at the Pilchuck Glass School when he graduated at 18. There Jason would meet and study with the world’s leading glass artists where he would continue to build his skills and further develop his style of working. By the time Jason was 22, he began receiving recognition around the world for his original groundbreaking work. Now 34, Jason’s work has been exhibited and collected in all parts of the world. He currently continues to expand the limitations of glass art in scale and detail. Jason’s passion for large installations continues to draw record crowds and public attention. Jason continues to passionately create and exhibit his remarkable one-of-a-kind works in a public setting where it can be seen and admired by all.
