Maria Aroche


Maria Aroche is a graduate of the Bead Project at UrbanGlass Studio. My passion in working with glass is the exploration of color and shapes while the material is in a honey like state. There is a meditative quality to bead making that you too will experience once you learn the basics. I have been invited to participate in several private and public events throughout New York City demonstrating the art of glass bead making. Summer 2014, I interned at the Corning Museum of Glass in Corning NY, assisting visitors in making their own glass beads and pendants.

Classes with Maria Aroche


Working glass on a torch is a wonderful introduction to the qualities of glass; color, light and fluidity. Students, with an eye on safety, will learn the basic skills of flame-working to melt colorful glass rods into beads.
