Web Description: 
Moje’s process involves fusing sheets of colored glasses in layers, cooling and then cutting the layered glass into small pieces, and then assembling them into patterns on a metal plate. The patterns are fused again inside of a kiln. Early in his career, Moje chose to work with a set of simple geometric shapes—such as the circle and the square—in the making 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 abstract glass paintings.
