About the Artist

Marianne Hite studied at Kent State University where she earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in 1987 with a concentration on glass and enameling. Marianne specializes in glass art, with a strong focus on fused glass. Her unique body of work is often influenced by nature, taking inspiration from the natural world around her and reflecting this beauty through the medium of glass. 

Marianne's work is extremely versatile, ranging from intricate jewelry to expansive public art installations. Consultations are available for custom artwork and larger installations. 

Classes are offered weekly at her private studio in Green, Ohio as well as through Peninsula Art Academy in Peninsula, Ohio. Many of her pieces can also be viewed and purchased from many galleries in Northeast Ohio including Peninsula Art Academy, Gallery 143, Akron Glass Works, and through Harris Stanton Virtual Gallery.
