Description

Tyler Massoth, or Mooseandfire Glass, got his start in glass art from his father. In 1999, at 6 years of age, Tyler started helping his dad make blown Christmas ornaments. This went on for years and he learned a lot from this informal training. Around 13 or 14 Tyler developed an interest in color changing glass and started trying to learn pipemaking. He did his own self education on fuming with precious metals, and started making crude attempts. Over the next 10 years Tyler refined and developed his own fuming and shaping style as he had no mentors to teach him. This made his development a slow process, but that is also the reason his fuming and shaping has a rather unique look – his styles were developed on his own. Tyler now has a signature heady look to his work that is striking at a glance.

This is an exceptional fumed bubble trap spoon by Tyler Massoth. The shaping and execution on this is so clean, it’s really stunning. The subtle fumicello swirl on the face of the can flowers out into a dot box pattern with bubble trap highlights all the way around the outside. It’s impressive work. There’s a small honeycomb marble on the can as the only adornment. When the shaping, fuming colors, and bubble trap highlights come together this well the clean approach works well.

2.25 inches tall, 2.5 inches wide including the small marble, and 4.5 inches long. The bowl is about a snap bowl with a 3mm hole. That small hole will make it easy to use jackless. A beautiful bubble trap spoon! The color change on this will be stunning. Fantastic work from Tyler Massoth!
