Contemporary Santa Fe Art Gallery on Historic Canyon Road

Harry Pollitt

Fluid line and elegant form describe Pollitt’s work perfectly.   Harry Pollitt keeps line, form, balance, positive and negative space, rhythm and flow in mind when creating these masterful crystal glass sculptures.  As an artist who has been creating for 40+ years, this artist began his sculpting career by carving wood.  Glass has become his main obsession.  “I love the color glass offers as a medium.  There is so much to explore.  I love the color and translucency crystal glass offers.”
