This year I have started a new private class and home stay package

Come and work with me one-on-one in my studio and stay in our comfy Airbnb room with a private entrance in the lower level of our house.  You can choose to work with me in glass, encaustic or studio is equipped for all three with separated work areas for each technique.  We live in a lovely rural area only 5 miles from Port Townsend, Washington.  Our wooded neighborhood is quiet and peaceful, and the town of Port Townsend has many fine restaurants and shops.  Make an art vacation of it and come stay, learn something new, and enjoy what the area has to offer!

Here's what students have said about my classes: "Martha as a person/teacher was perfect. The temperament and vibe in the studio was ideal."  "...was wonderfully laid back in her approach."  "Martha was lovely. She taught and set us free to play..."

Personalized instruction, ample studio time (both with me and alone if you wish), lunch and snacks, and accomodation in our guest room with private bath, patio and hot tub.

Price: $300 per day plus materials (minimum 2 days).

I will be teaching a new glass class at the Bainbridge Island BARN this fall, the first two weekends in November.  It is an introduction to working with glass powders and layers to create simple and yet visually complex images.  It is a perfect class for anyone new to glass, or for those experienced glass artists who haven't worked with powders.  Click here for more information.

New line of functional glass 

I have started to experiment with creating glass in my style but then slumping it to create pieces that are both unique and functional.  You can see it in person at the Northwind Art Center's Showcase Gallery in Port Townsend, Washington.  

It is an ongoing pursuit, and I know my work will evolve and change as time goes by.  In the meantime here is a sampling:



I have started a Youtube channel.  You can check out all my videos here.


I am thrilled to have some of my kiln glass work on the Artful Home website!  If you would like to see my Artful Home page click here.
