Harry Pollitt creates unique kiln cast glass sculptures. He sees sensuous curves suspended in negative space — and just can’t help himself! He captures luminous motion with a mature and distinctive aesthetic that comes, in part, from 40 years as a wood sculptor with an engineering background. His vision brings lightness and grace to the world of glass sculpture.

    Lots of descriptors fit my newest cast glass sculpture...cantilevered, precarious, a challenge, jade green. What it cannot call itself is "meant to be." But six re-builds later, I call it pretty cool. Engineering disguised as aesthetics. And not easy to capture,...

Harry Pollitt

Every sculpture I have ever created was a challenge I set up for myself. Make it difficult. Stretch my abilities. Push the limits of the materials and the process — be it wood or glass sculpture. I understand that mine is not a normal business philosophy, which instead holds that things should be made simple, smooth and predictable.

But then I am an artist, a sculptor.  And, as I see it, my job is to run counter to the norm and to be oblivious to the known.

The Journey so far

“Scary” challenges are my joy…and have been since my first wood sculpture and turning. For forty years, my chosen medium was wood. It had long been my “perfect” material. I loved the feel, smell, color and character of it.

Then in November 2009, a man named Ted opened my eyes to the world of sculptural, kiln cast glass — and the fire was lit anew.  It prompted my totally unexpected “cross over” to studio glass art.  And like the ripples in a pond, the flow keeps expanding. I am confident in the knowledge that there is an endless set of rhythms to explore and that the purpose of life is to have the experience and the joy of pursuing it!

My Website

I invite you to “cross over” with me and browse both sides of my sculptural world on this website.  It showcases all my Glass sculptures (some of which are seen here or through main navigation and footer links).  Plus it features my roots and foundation in Wood art which you can also view and read about by using the same navigational tools.   I look forward to sharing my artistic journey with you.
