Web Description: 
For this multipart wall piece, Moje combined pieces of glass (red, black, yellow-green, and white), fused them in a kiln in several phases, and then cut and polished the individual panels. Set into steel mounts, the panels form a large, abstract composition. The surface cutting, which reflects light, creates a dynamic movement that travels up, down, and across the piece. Early in his career, Moje chose to work with a set of simple geometric shapes—such as the circle and the square—in the form of shallow bowls. Later, he expanded his repertoire to include cylinders and flat panels. Within these formats, he has experimented with geometric and abstract patterns to create remarkable glass paintings.
