Harrie's work draws on an extensive knowledge of cane and murine techniques and displays precision and attention to detail rare in studio glass. Every piece is handcrafted and inspected to ensure the highest quality. A gifted and innovative glassblower, his work has been published in the Corning Museum of Glass New Glass Review and exhibited in galleries all over North America and at the Nelson Art Museum in Kansas City and the Royal Art Gallery in Kyoto, Japan.
