Event Details

The Venetian Goblet is the apex of glassblowing expertise. Many glassblowers strive to make that simple, perfect goblet. It is a journey of challenges that are complex,  satisfying and nuanced to a point of madness. Yet when the small steps are conquered the goblet shows its beauty, wonder, and accomplishment. This class will become the beginnings  of that wonderful journey.

Our focus will be on the bowl, the avolio, and the blown foot, and learning that the timing and expertise of the assistant is as important as the main gaffer. We welcome all students with some glassblowing experience to participate in what will be an exciting and mind opening weekend.

Instructor: Charles Provenzano

2 sessions: February 24, 25

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.
