You will see these pieces being made live during the demonstration in
Bursuker’s glass studio. This is a fundraiser for Rockland Center for the
Arts, your purchases support RoCA’s extensive programs.

Bursuker’s glass pieces are inspired from his love of both photography and
sculpture. He has developed a relationship between two artistic mediums
that conflict in many ways. While glass is three dimensional and formed by
hand with heat, photography is two dimensional, seen by the eye and created
by light. By combining the two art forms he raises questions about form
verses function and art versus craft. The marriage of these two disciplines
creates intriguing pieces that involve a complicated carving method onto
glass, derived from his own digital photography images. He photographs
themes ranging from city architecture to natural landscapes. He uses
elegant traditional blown glass inspired forms and mixes beautiful vibrant
colors that have a magnitude of hues and tones. Nature inspires his art and
lighting. Images are sand carved onto the blown glass, making them
tangible, a vision you can touch. The end result speaks to Bursuker about
life, process, memory, and experience. His work ranges from functional
production, to large blown forms, lighting and wall mounted artworks.
Moshe Bursuker received his BFA degree in sculpture and photography from
the Hartford Art School at the University of Hartford. It was there that he
began working with glass. He continued his endeavors in glass attending
UrbanGlass, Pilchuk Glass School and the Studio at the Corning Museum of
Glass, where he worked with world renowned glass artists. His artwork has
been presented at numerous art shows, including the S.O.F.A. Exposition in
Chicago, Baltimore Whole Markets of the American Craft Council, Buyers’
Market of American Craft in Philadelphia, and the Architectural Digest Home
design show among others. Bursuker is a Westchester, NY artist.
