Profile

The folks at UrbanGlass work very hard to “engender a public appreciation of glass,” and if you wish to support them in that goal by patronizing their store, you must first work very hard to find it. But after the ordeal of locating a warehouse on a desolate side street with a barely marked door, signing in with the building’s doorman, and taking a rickety elevator to the third floor, a 17,000-square-foot world of glass is your reward. Though primarily a working studio, a small part of the space is devoted to a store that carries the work of some of the artists who slave over the on-site furnaces and sandblasters. Their pieces include things you would expect to find made of glass (goblets, vases, plates, bowls) and some you might not, like bangle bracelets, some of which are colorfully decorated, and all of which are meticulously crafted. To get inspired, shoppers need only look through the glass walls of the shop, which offer a full view of the studio artists hard at work glassblowing, lampworking, fusing, and kiln casting.
