UrbanGlass Residency Award
Students majoring in Glass may be interested in attending a 2 week summer workshop at UrbanGlass located in Brooklyn, New York! UrbanGlass is an open-access facility where over 200 professional artists and designers create using glass. Our facility fosters community and serves as an incubator for creation and innovation. UrbanGlass’ 17,000 square foot state-of-the-art studios are filled with natural light and the best equipment available. The facility includes a hot shop, cold shop, kiln room, flameworking shop, mold room, and flat working area. The hot shop has six glory holes ranging in size from nine to 36 inches, two 1,000 pound furnaces, and a wide range of annealers. The cold shop features heavy equipment such as belt sanders and can be easily cleaned by hosing down the equipment into large grated floor sinks. The studios also feature a dedicated kiln room with 14 kilns and a mold shop. The lampworking studio houses workstations for 15 artists and a variety of torches at each station.
