Inside the Artist's Studio: Moshe Bursuker

May 11th, at 6pm, via Zoom
$10

Glassblower Moshe Bursuker will virtually give us a glimpse into his studio. Bursuker’s glass pieces are inspired by his love of both photography and sculpture. He has developed a relationship between two artistic mediums that conflict in many ways. While glass is three-dimensional and formed by hand with heat, photography is two-dimensional, seen by the eye and created by light.

Glassblower Moshe Bursuker will virtually give us a glimpse into his studio. Bursuker’s glass pieces are inspired by his love of both photography and sculpture. He has developed a relationship between two artistic mediums that conflict in many ways. While glass is three-dimensional and formed by hand with heat, photography is two-dimensional, seen by the eye and created by light. By combining the two art forms he raises questions about form versus function and art versus craft. The marriage of these two disciplines creates intriguing pieces that involve a complicated carving method onto glass, derived from his own digital photography images. He photographs themes ranging from city architecture to natural landscapes. He uses elegant traditional blown glass-inspired forms and mixes beautiful vibrant colors that have a magnitude of hues and tones. Nature inspires his art and lighting. Images are sand carved onto the blown glass, making them tangible, a vision you can touch. The end result speaks to Bursuker about life, process, memory, and experience. His work ranges from functional production to large blown forms, lighting, and wall-mounted artworks.

About the Artist

Moshe Bursuker is a glass artist living and working out of his studio in North Salem, NY. He strives to bridge the gap between glass as a craft and glass as fine art. He believes that glass art can be either sculptural or functional and that the line between craft and fine art is crossed when a glass maker brings intention, unique thinking and knowledge of the material into what is handmade.

He received his BFA degree in sculpture and photography from the Hartford Art School at the University of Hartford. It was there when he first began working with glass. After leaving Hartford, Moshe continued to pursue his artistic endeavors as a glass artist. He attended UrbanGlass, Pilchuck Glass School and the Studio at the Corning Museum of Glass, where he has worked with world renowned glass artists. Moshe’s artwork has been presented at numerous art shows, including the S.O.F.A. Exposition in Chicago, Baltimore Wholesale Markets of the American Craft Council, Buyers’ Market of American Craft in Philadelphia and the Architectural Digest Home design show and many others.

He uses elegant traditional blown glass inspired forms and mixes beautiful vibrant colors that have a magnitude of hues and tones. Nature inspires Moshe’s art and lighting.

With over two decades of experience learning and teaching glass blowing and sculpture, Moshe believes he is just starting to unlock his full potential. He recognizes that there is always more to learn, more to try and more to do when it comes to glass.

Moshe’s works have been featured in numerous galleries and exhibition spaces around the country. He has taught and has had residencies at several renowned institutions such as The Corning Museum of Glass, UrbanGlass in Brooklyn, NY and Wheaton Arts in New Jersey. He teaches as an adjunct professor at the Hartford Art School and the University of Hartford, which is also his alma mater.
