Klaus Moje at SOFA Chicago 2009
One key measure of a teaching artist is the caliber of his students. Klaus Moje – and the glass workshop that he founded at the Canberra School of Art in 1982 – has produced many of the most talented artists working in kiln-glass today.

Moje retired from Canberra in 1991, but has, in the years since, taught a limited number of hugely popular short courses through institutions from Bullseye to UrbanGlass to Pilchuck to North Lands, to name just a few. His mentorship of emerging artists and his life as a model of the innovative master puts him among the legends in our field. He is, furthermore, a teacher whose continuing personal explorations in glass provide lessons as valuable as any taught in the classroom.

Following on his much-acclaimed recent museum exhibitions in New York and Portland, Moje will join Bullseye Gallery at SOFA Chicago where we will exhibit a limited selection of his museum tour pieces and older works, including a single Portland Panel from the historic set created at the Bullseye factory in 2007. Copies of his recent US and Australian catalogs will also be available – with the opportunity to have yours signed by the artist.
