Tom Moore Guest Artist Demonstration

Watch Tom Moore create a fantastical sculpture with historical references in this demo from the Amphitheater on August 8, 2019. See the final piece starting at 2:08:34. Moore imagines and creates in glass gorgeous birds and animals that have hybridized with modern automobiles and airplanes and is inhabited by exquisite creatures that are morphing to inhabit a universe that seems quite as ominous as it is beautiful. The Guest Artist Series features world-class visiting artists at work in the Amphitheater Hot Shop. These special, extended demonstrations provide a fascinating peek at the techniques, artistry, and improvisation that comprise contemporary glassmaking. Our own Hot Glass Demo Team assists and narrates for each artist, answering audience questions in real time. Learn more at
