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, lamp 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.
Studio artists are able to rent a variety of different types of storage spaces for their equipment, materials, and projects, and may utilize a lounge and showers.
UrbanGlass’ Studio Atelier acts as an interface between the New York visual art, sculpture, design and architecture communities. Recent commissions include work done with Dakota Jackson and Eva Zeisel, Tom Otterness, Tony Oursler, and Tsao & McKown Architects.
