Color of Distance

JESSI MOORE

Moore was first introduced to glass in Seattle, Washington, when her parents kindly agreed to her enrolling in a local glassblowing program for high school students.  From the moment Moore took her first terrifying and exhilarating gather of glass, she was hooked on the material and its endless possibilities for artistic expression.

Before moving to Corning to work for the Corning Museum of Glass, Moore spent fifteen years honing her craft. Teaching, making, and helping others instruct led her all over the country, including Seattle, Hawaii, Illinois, Massachusetts, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania. 

While Moore was initially drawn to the drama and excitement of glassblowing, it was the expressive potential of kiln worked glass where Moore found her artistic voice. Her current body of work combines several glass working techniques, including pâte de verre. This technique involves meticulously arranging particles of glass into molds that are then heated to sinter the glass together. 

Moore holds a B.A. in American Cultural Studies from Western Washington University and a M.F.A. from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale.   Her resume and portfolio are available online at www.jessimooreglass.com

Artist Statement

I am intrigued by the spaces in-between. Where the earth meets the sky. In looking out at the horizon or up at the sky. Color is of particular interest to me. The way the world blends and bleeds from one color into another. 

In my work I look to replicate the intrigue and reflection felt when gazing up at the sky or out at the ever-receding line of the horizon.
