New York, NY. May 2008 – You will be intrigued and drawn in by the original look of Christopher Mosey’s Blown Glass Sculpture. You will be even more captivated when you touch them.

Known for his distinctly tactile glass art, Mosey studied ceramics and glassblowing at the Appalachian Center for Crafts. After his first glassblowing class in 1996, there was no looking back. He began exploring ways to give glass the textural and sculptural attributes that he enjoyed while working with clay, while also showcasing the unique light-reflecting properties and structural integrity of glass. The results of this exploration include pieces such as his Chrysalis series, large-scale, multi-textured sculptural works evocative of the protective shell from which butterfly’s emerge transformed.

Mosey, who recently moved into an expensive state-of-the-art studio space he designed and built in Chattanooga Tennessee, is excited to be showing his new collection in New York City: “This is the first collection I will be creating in my new studio and many of these one-of-a-kind pieces will evolve into the core of my 2009 collection. This new space allows me to create sculptures of an unconstrained size and scope.

The glass arts community, especially in New York, is very excited about the new exhibit. “American glassblowing and sculpture has a distinctive style to that of Italy and other countries,” states Mosey, “There is an inventiveness and a newness to American Glass. Many glassblowers, such as myself, have created our own tools and techniques, as well as built spaces that allow us to work with glass in new ways".

43 8th Avenue Gallery is proud of its commitment to featuring living artists from America, as well as invited guests from around the world. The American Glass exhibit features only works made in American and honors the unique cultural heritage and distinctive traditions in American glassblowing and sculpture.

Established by curator Alex Beitler, 43 8th Avenue Gallery in the West Village features emerging and mid-career artists who have come to New York City from all over the world. Mr. Beitler gives each artist a solo exhibit in NYC.

The Gallery is open Mondays through Saturdays, 11am-8pm. On Sundays the Gallery is open by appointment only.
