About the Artist
Debora Moore is well known for her imagined glass orchids and organic forms. By combining new techniques with traditional glassblowing skills, and an attention to detail, Moore is able to achieve a unique depth of color and exquisitely crafted forms. Moore started working in glass in the late 1980s at Pratt Fine Arts Center in Seattle, WA and has since served as instructor at Pratt, the Hilltop Glass Program in Tacoma, and the Pilchuck Glass School. In 2005, Moore was artist-in-residence at the Museum of Glass in Tacoma and the Abate Zanetti in Murano, Italy. In 2007 The Corning Museum of Glass awarded Moore their Rakow Commission and in 2020, she was featured in the "Renwick Invitational: Forces Of Nature" at the Smithsonian Renwick Gallery. Currently, Moore has work on display at Hillwood in Glass: Art. Beauty. Design.
