Interview with Jason Ramey

A. Firstly, can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

My background is in furniture design. I did my undergrad work at The Herron School of Art and Design in Indianapolis Indiana. My Graduate work was done at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. My work ranges from fully functional to completely conceptual. My recent body of work, The Half Wall series pairs iconic furniture forms with a common architectural elements found in American vernacular interiors.


B. Please tell us more about your art and design background, and what made you become an artist/ designer

I began my career about 15 years ago making steel furniture in a small shop in Indiana. Around the same time, I became interested in furniture made of wood. I found The Herron school of Art and Design and from that point on, I was hooked. At Herron I learned how to use hand tool and various pieces of machinery. I also refined my design and making process while studying at Herron. After 4 years at Herron, I went to the Furniture Design/wood graduate program at UW Madison. My work changed drastically at UW. I became interested things that weren’t furniture centric, such as architectural details and methods of construction as they relate to American Vernacular interiors.


C. What is your favorite part of the design process?

My favorite part of the process is when I truly know that I’m ready to take it from sketches to reality.


D. For you, what makes a product rare?

For me, a “rare” product would be one that I have to look at several times in a day to make sure that is in fact what I saw. We see so many images these days that if an object demands my attention more than once, then there is a real possibility that is a new object.


E. Where do you get inspiration?

Though I don’t design fashion items, I still find a great deal of inspiration in fashion. I never know where I might find inspiration. It could be something as simple as a conversation or it may be something I see on my daily bicycle ride. In either case, I try to keep my sketchbook close!


F. If you had a day off tomorrow, what would you like to do?

I think I’d take time to peruse a few of my older sketchbooks in hopes that I may find something that seems like a better idea now.
