Contemporary Art Glass

Mariel Bass studied fine art and glass at Massachusetts College of Art, where she first discovered the art of glass blowing and earned a bachelor of fine art degree in 2005. She has attended workshops and well known craft schools throughout the U.S., such as Pilchuck in Washington, Haystack School of Crafts in Maine, and Corning Glass in New York. She worked several glass studios in the New England area before relocating to St John USVI in 2008, where she ran a recycled hot glass studio. From 2013-2020, Mariel lived in St. Petersburg, FL where she operated a large hot glass facility and created blown and sculpted glass for the artist Duncan McClellan, while also continuing to expand her own creative practice. She is currently an instructor at the MIT Glass Lab in Cambridge, MA and continues to create one of a kind sculptures in glass and metal for artists, galleries, museums and private/public commission.
