Klaus Moje is an internationally known artist and influential teacher who pioneered studio glass in Europe and later in Australia. 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.
This lecture was filmed as part of The Museum's popular Meet the Artist series at The Corning Museum of Glass. Moje's presentation will be followed by a panel discussion about his work with curator of modern glass, Tina Oldknow, and Dan Schwoerer and Lani McGregor of Bullseye Glass Company in Portland, OR.

Throughout his successful career, he has pushed himself and glass beyond traditional technical skills into the realm of abstract art. Born in Germany, where he lived most of his life, Klaus moved to Australia in 1982, where he established the glass program at the Australian National University in Canberra.
