Jessi Moore is an artist, fabricator and educator currently based in Brooklyn, New York. Prior to moving to NYC she spent several years as an instructor at The Studio of the Corning Museum of Glass, sharing her love of the material with the public at large.
The show consists of large scale pate de verre abstractions paired with intimate blown glass containers. Playing with perception through obscuring and distorting visibility Internal Workings draws the viewer in for a deeper look at what it is to remember.
Moore continues to work with blown glass extensively and in addition to blowing glass she also has found an artistic voice in kiln formed glass. Her current body of work combines several glass working techniques, including pate de verre. This meticulous technique involves arranging particles of glass into molds that are then heated to sinter the glass together.
