Originally from Bristol Vermont, Jason Morrissey transferred to Maine College of Art to pursue a degree for Metalsmithing and Jewelry in 1995. During this period Jason assisted in a soft glass shop and began flame working borosilicate glass to incorporate beads and cabochons in his jewelry.
In the early 2000’s, Jason shifted his focus to working in pattern welded tool steel (Damascus steel). Applying glass cane and millefiori techniques to his metal craft gave Jason a different perspective and approach to making steel patterns.
Jason’s shop is located in Portland Maine and he lives with his loving and supportive family in Scarborough Maine
