Jamie Herman is a woodworker and studio furniture maker based out of Burlington, Vermont. Jamie was brought up in Kentucky and Ohio, and completed a degree in anthropology at the University of Cincinnati. He first came to be inspired by craft and material culture while participating in archaeological digs at Mississippian and Maya sites, where he realized both the power objects can have and the stories they can tell. He developed an interest in carpentry while working on organic farms in the Pacific Northwest, and eventually decided to switch coasts to attend the Vermont Woodworking School to study fine woodworking and furniture design. Since then, Jamie’s work has garnered national acclaim, including a grant from the New Hampshire Furniture Masters and the Craftsman’s Challenge Grand Prize at the 2018 International Woodworking Fair.
