Moshe Bursuker - Glass Artist

Moshe Bursuker received his BFA degree in sculpture and photography from the Hartford Art School at the University of Hartford. It was there when he first began working with glass. After leaving Hartford, Moshe continued to pursue his artistic endeavors as a glass artist. He attended Urban Glass, Pilchuck Glass School and the Studio at the Corning Museum of Glass, where he has worked with world’s renowned glass artists.

Moshe’s artwork has been presented at numerous art shows, including the  SOFA Exposition in Chicago, Baltimore Wholesale Markets of the American Craft Council, Buyers Market of American Craft in Philadelphia, and the Architectural Digest Home design show and many others.

Moshe’s pieces are  inspired from his love of photography and sculpture.  The marriage of these two disciplines creates intriguing pieces that involve a complicated carving method onto glass, derived from digital images.  He photographs themes ranging from city architecture to natural landscapes.

Moshe began his line of art lighting after working with some of New York Cities best artists, designers and architects on various glass lighting installations. He decided to embark with his own designs.  Utilizing all the tools in place from years of glass fabrication and art education, Moshe created the Image Pendants and Droplets.

He uses elegant traditional blown glass inspired forms and mixes beautiful vibrant colors that have a magnitude of hues and tones.  Nature inspires Moshe’s art and lighting. This is evident in the complex hand carvings of the Image Pendants and the fluid natural feeling of the Droplets.
