Jamie Herman is a furniture maker, sculptor, and teacher based in upstate New York. Brought up in Kentucky and Ohio, Jamie tried his hand at classical music, archaeology, and organic farming (among other things) 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. In 2021, Jamie was awarded the John D. Mineck Furniture Fellowship, and in 2024 he will participate in the Windgate Arts Residency at the Museum for Art in Wood. Jamie is interested in exploring how material culture can influence our identities, how our individualities spill over into what we make, and how participating in craft can change how we think. He wants everything he makes to be well-used, well-loved, and to last a lifetime.
