He then outfits students with the knowledge and skills they’ll need to create blown-glass pieces such as beads and marbles. Glass and materials are included. Classes are available weekday evenings and weekend afternoons; schedule one here.
Marc Kornbluh knows glass. The Tisch School of the Arts graduate and renowned artist has learned to manipulate the medium until it takes on the form of just about any shape, whether it’s a cluster of flowers, a spiky fish, or a seashell perched on a smooth orb. In his humble downtown studio space, Kornbluh expertly wields torches as he melts glass into submission, creating stunning pieces that pop in craft fairs, gallery shows, and elegant doghouse foyers across the country.
“Mark made the experience very enjoyable. I would highly recommend this class to everyone interested in glass.”
