Event Details

Exploring the relationship of hot fusion and cold contemplation, this class will alternate between technique and concept, often two opposing forces in the hot shop.  In the first part of the class, we will be using a free hand asymmetrical technique to join together multiple blown objects, exploring teamwork and quick decision making in the hot shop. The emphasis will be on understanding heat zones and proper application techniques so your hot joints will look cool. Garage and torch vs glory hole techniques will be explored. The second part of the class will be in the hot shop, but the conversation will be about what happens outside of the hot shop.  Using a loose symmetrical bowl form, the emphasis will be on assemblage and what can be put in the bowl, not what the bowl looks like.

Instructor: Elias Hansen
Weekend | 2 sessions: December 3 & 4

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.
