Influenced by Venetian traditions in glass, Benjamin Moore makes glass objects that demonstrate very high degrees of balance, symmetry and elegance. Benjamin studied at the California College of Art and at Rhode Island School of Design. In search of technical knowledge and perfection in form he moved in 1978 to Murano, where he worked for 2 years at the Venini factory as a glassblower with maestro Checco Ongaro and also as a designer. Benjamin opened his own glass studio in Seattle in 1985. He has been a key player in establishing Seattle as a centre for contemporary glass and has been involved with the Pilchuck Glass School for 35 years. His work is exhibited internationally and is part of numerous collections worldwide.
