Few artists have had such a broad and clear impact on the development of a medium as Klaus Moje has had on kilnformed glass. In 1983, Moje founded what would become Australia’s premier center for talent in glass art: the Glass Workshop at the Canberra School of Art, Australian National University. Since then, Moje has received the Rakow Commission from the Corning Museum of Glass, along with Lifetime Achievement Awards from UrbanGlass and the Glass Art Society. His work is represented in dozens of public collections in Europe, Australia, Japan and the United States. Moje’s art has been the subject of major museum retrospectives that have toured Germany, Australia and the United States in 1995, 2008, and 2009.
The alliance of imagination and knowledge results in artworks of maturity. - Klaus Moje
