Momo Glassworks is one of our newest jewelers in the gallery.
Rosario Torres is of Argentine extraction, born in Tandil in the Province of Buenos Aires. She is a natural autodidact, gifted at picking up the rudiments of things and then improvising, innovating, and leaping into cross-over genres with her work. She learned the basics ofvitrofusion (glass fusing) in the workshop of a neighbor who taught classes nearby while living in Buenos Aires.
Edo Mor was born in Ramat Ha’Sharon in Israel and moved to the US at the age of nine. He met Rosario while backpacking in Spain, near Jaen in Andalucia. They began traveling together, were soon living together, and shortly after, began working together with glass. It was a love affair, a creative rapport, and a language intensive, all in one.
Their abundance of time spent on four different continents is visible in the work; their feelings and intuitions hover between hemispheres, the Old and New World. Just as important is their easy, willful departure into hermetic, inner worlds. They sometimes spend several days in the studio without leaving for longer than the time it takes for an evening walk.
Edo and Rosario married in 2004 and decided to settle in the US in late 2005. Amaya Torres Mor was born in the summer of 2011. Django Mor was born in the summer of 2013. They live in Western Massachusetts, in the village of Haydenville just outside the town of Northampton.
