Merrilee Moore at Foster/White Gallery — until May 24 —

12 May

I am always a sucker for good glass-work and Ms. Moore seems to be an expert in expressing emotion in this artistic medium. She is currently showcasing and selling her work in this swanky Pioneer Square Gallery.


Merrilee Moore feels no other medium gives her the freedom to explore architectural form, texture, and color better than glass. Moore accentuates her bowls and vessels with a vivid palette then fuses them to dense, ice block-like bases. Her play between delicate and powerful, whimsical and sculptural, offers a fresh perspective on glass as a medium. Moore developed her unique style through workshops at Pratt Fine Arts Center and the Pilchuck Glass School.

Moore earned her BFA at Central Washington University in 1987. In 2004, Moore began the Gesture series. The elegant, graceful forms in this series are cold worked; she creates their textures through the use of battuto, sandblasting, and etching techniques. Moore has exhibited with Foster/White since 1997. (information from
