He is currently an associate professor of art at West Virginia University in Morgantown, West Virginia.
Moore was a fellow of the Archie Bray Foundation in Helena, Montana, and Watershed Center for Ceramic Arts in Newcastle, Maine. He has presented numerous workshops at schools and institutions across the nation. His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally in such venues as The National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts Clay National, American Shino and The Fletcher Challenge. Examples of his work can be viewed in publications such as “The Ceramic Design Book,” “The Ceramic Glaze Handbook” and “Claytimes Magazine.” In 2004, he was awarded an Ohio Arts Council Individual Artist Grant.
