Brian Moore
     My creation of hot glass to solid form is not only a physical transformation, but a spiritial transformation as well. I find, like most problems, issues or dilemmas, molten glass has no boundaries or conclusions.  It is lost before even knowing what it can become. Then, through due process, time, and letting go of preconceptions, it comes to life and forms its' own conclusion. The answer is always within, and natural progression will do what force cannot inflict.
     The inspiration for my work lies in landscape and nature.- understanding how systems and our methodical earth correlate to visual arts, and more specifically to hot glass. Living in Northwestern Montana has opened my horizons and given me more inspiraton than I can handle.  Through the act of involving myself in the views that inspire, I become a part of them, linking my love of the visual landscape to that of visual art. I am driven to the studio where my soul takes a rest and moves distant from trouble and worry.  The studio is where I meditate on the cycle of life and give birth to solidifying form.
     Yes, the studio is where I find myself dreaming and comtemplating with my good friend,Lee Proctor. I met Lee soon after moving to Whitefish, Montana. He graciously gave me the opportunity to work with him- and I took it. In doing so, we have become a working pair. His conceptual nature drives my creativity. He pushes me to let go and to experiment with ideas I may not think possible, leading me to love the art of blowing glass even more.
     Glass flows in it's liquid nature and the work comes to life. An idea is lost and a new one takes its place. In letting go of the old idea , we adapt to its natural successor. Everything must end, but how much will begin befoer it does? Let us respect the idea of giving what is taken. The idea that what is in focus has as much control over you as you over it. Let us respect the life cycle.
     Continually finding different pathways to explore creates an interest is all mediums. My interest lies in all artforms and those who choose to explore them- for they are the ones pushing our people.   The simple acts of living our lives becomes my favorite aspect of art; to recognize and love the way a friend bakes a cake, to notice the strokes of the painters brush, or the way a woman soothes lengths of hair by running her fingers slowly though them.
