Event Details

Designed with the beginner in mind, this intensive and informational introductory class will guide students through the possibilities of what can happen when sheet and crushed glass are fused, bent or slumped in a kiln. Using a wide variety of glass from the colorful Bullseye Glass palette, students will gain a fundamental understanding of kilnforming processes, including cutting glass, sheet and strip construction, and working with powders and frits (crushed glass). After introductory sessions covering the basics, students will have the opportunity to explore and create their own individual projects. The various steps of a firing schedule and the importance of glass compatibility and annealing will be discussed, and basic cold working techniques introduced to enhance and finish projects. Hands on studio work will be complemented by short presentations on historic and contemporary kilnformed glass.


Instructor: Jane Bruce

UrbanGlass

UrbanGlass is dedicated to furthering the use of glass as a creative medium, through studios, classes, publications, exhibitions, and events.   We offer a comprehensive education program for students at every age and skill level - from children to working artists - in a variety of techniques, including kiln casting, lampworking, mosaics, and stained glass. Over 500 students a year come to study and work with faculty that includes world-renowned artists and designers. UrbanGlass serves as the primary studio of over 200 professional artists and designers.


Founded in 1977 by artists Richard Yelle and Erik Erikson as the New York Experimental Glass Workshop, UrbanGlass was the first artist-access glass center in the United States and is now the largest. Previously, those interested in working in glass could only do so at art schools, in factories or by building their own studios, but when UrbanGlass opened its doors, glass as an art medium became widely available.
