Tom Moore creates fantastical hybrid characters, each hand-blown in glass, which he places in enchanting mixed media landscapes. 'Life Preserver' is inspired by historical cabinets of curiosity in which biological oddities (sometimes faked) were highly prized. Offering a refreshing new twist on this idea, Moore’s vivid conglomerate creatures are placed in hand blown bell jars imbuing them with an aura of science and believability.
