In this class, you will focus on unique approaches to both solid and blown glass sculpting. By manipulating the glass as both a solid mass and a hollow form, you will learn a full range of shaping techniques, including Martin’s specific approach of sculpting from within the bubble. Working without limitations, you will explore process, possibilities, and the limitless potential of the material. You will learn bit work, how to use various torches and the garage, and how to use a unique set of tools made for working from the inside out.

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.
