Klaus Moje influenced Bullseye Glass tremendously. His quest for compatible glass sparked the company’s drive to make it. And in the decades that followed kiln-glass’ development by Bullseye, Moje showed the world that it could be art. Fittingly, he went on to teach and mentor many of the medium’s finest artists.
During this conversation from April 2012, Moje and Bullseye founder Daniel Schwoerer sit down to reminisce. As they do, they touch on a few intriguing histories. One stars a young Moje as an artist in Germany. Another skirts the history of glass art and its possibilities. But the main history recounts the relationship formed between a pioneering artist and an intrepid manufacturer.
