I have reserved this page to post pictures!   You will see pictures of the studio, tools & techniques.  For sheer pleasure we will share pictures of students and friends laughing and playing with molten glass and silver and who knows what!   As a full time studio artist I like to try new mediums and techniques for fun.  All the different creative experiences prove to be useful in my work as a glass artist and jewelry designer and fabricator.  Because I have a new light filled studio on the sea I get many requests to host workshops. We've painted canvas rugs and made felt from 100% wool fibers by wetting and manipulating fibers.  We have oil painted.   What's next?  A few ideas are being batted around right now.  Check back to see what we come up with!  Of course Glass Beadmaking and metalsmith classes will always take center stage at Marj Bates Studio!
