JAMIE MARIE ROSE GROVE
Jamie Marie Rose [b. Peoria, IL] is a multi-disciplinary artist who creates anything from cast sculptures to ephemeral, site-specific installations. Rose has won many awards and honors for her artwork, including a Puffin Foundation Grant and the Jerry Raphael Fellowship through the Metropolitan Contemporary Glass Group. Her work has been written about in publications such as American Craft and Vogue. Rose’s current interests include investigating transient processes in conjunction with glass.
‘I am drawn to materials that convey strong dualities: destruction and preservation, beauty and danger, fragility and strength. Glass is inherently beatific and delicate, yet it can endure for thousands of years if left untouched.
Contrastingly, organic materials carry a sense of mortality. They can be burned, frayed, and decompose. This push-and-pull between materials inspires much of my sculptural work.’
