In his kilnformed glass paintings, Michael Endo utilizes a wide variety of image making techniques. By combining centuries-old glass painting, glass powder and frit painting, and drawing processes adapted for kiln-glass, he constructs multi-layered atmospheric spaces and narratives. This workshop will focus the techniques Endo uses in his practice and will encompass painting with glass powders, enamel painting adapted for high temperatures, layered kilnforming, and will touch on printing and drawing techniques for kiln-glass.

When & Where
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.
