Jaime Guerrero is one of the few and first artists in the world to sculpt life size figures in glass. Jaime takes glass into new realms with his remarkable ability to imbue his medium with palpable emotion and spirit. He is known for manipulating glass in an unusual technique of working inside and outside hot glass to sculpt a piece.

For the exhibition at the Craft in America Center, Jaime will be filling the gallery with an installation of a group of blown glass life size children that will represent children who are being detained at the border each day. These glass children will be batting at a suspended glass piñata that will be embellished with vivid papier mache streamers. His hope is that the installation will humanize and universalize the experience of these young immigrants, and initiate discussion about the critical challenges they face.

Jaime will be featured in Craft in America's 2017 episode, BORDERS. This episode is an introduction to the vast interrelationships in the craft practices of Mexico and the United States.

This exhibition is part of the Getty Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA Initiative.
