Video Interview with Collector Roddie Harris
Roddie Harris is Santa Fe's most celebrated Glass Art Collector and is a Glass Alliance NM Patron. She is a maker of art and a celebrated jewelry designer.
Roddie and her husband, Steve, started collecting art glass twenty years ago. Collecting small pieces at local art fairs led to a discovery of Dale Chihuly's work at The Detroit Museum of Art. Ask her about it and watch Roddie's face light up as she recalls how Chihuly and his Sea Foam of glass spoke to them in a way that started their passion for glass.
Over the years they have collected glass from every place they have traveled. From Europe to Israel, Detroit to Seattle, each art glass piece has a special place in their contemporary Santa Fe home, which is a work of art in and of itself. It houses their exquisite art collection, including this one of kind Chihuly chandelier.
Roddie also serves on the Board of Performance Santa Fe and Women in the Arts.
