Dr Sarmiento has worked internationally as a Fulbright Fellow in Denmark, a Visiting Artist at UrbanGlass, and an instructor at Pilchuck Glass School. He won the International Glass Prize 2012 at Glazenhuis, Belgium and his solo exhibition at National Glass Centre in Sunderland toured to Bullseye Projects, USA. His collaborative work was also included in Glasstress Gotika at the 56th Venice Biennale. He leads National Glass Centre Research and is also Artistic Director at North Lands Creative Glass, Scotland.

 

Encapsulating narratives of ethnicity in glass artworks is the focus of Jeffrey Sarmiento’s creative practice-based research. Combining concepts with process, his approach blends responses to ethnic contexts with techniques for embedding the graphic image in glass. Using cultural contexts as specific sites, collaboration with cultural communities and museum collections inform artworks that are metaphorical and literal lenses through which to view culture. Techniques of glass printing, waterjet cutting and kilnforming are combined in unique ways to create glass artworks.
