michelle szuch (& Baby bella)

She helped mom, Shannon, start the biz in 1999 while still in high school. The business started doing great and she had to leave for college. She obtained a BS in Chemistry and went into a law enforcement position in a local metro agency.

After five years of serving and protecting, she missed working with mom and being creative, so she came back to the biz in 2010. She's been doing the websites, Facebook and computer work as well as teaching. She is considered a manager & operator for Bella Glass Studios and now Bella Fired Creations as well.

shannon abote

Owner and operator of Bella Glass Studios and Bella Fired Creations, she started out with stained glass way back when before her kids were a twinkle in her eye, and of course when they became more than twinkles, she had to quit due to the lead issues in stained glass.

After the kids were older, she picked up stained glass again, but also started fusing. She traveled across the country and even out of country learning extensively from different, wonderful top name fused glass instructors. She started the glass biz in 1999 and the rest is history!  She still loves the class and beauty of stained glass but fusing has become her greatest passion (well, aside from grandkids).

About our studio

2007 - the year we moved to the awesome RiNo art district

We love this district!!  We are definitely off the beaten path here, but we wouldn't trade our location for anything. There is an abundance of creativity not only in this building, but also in the entire RiNo district and we are so happy to be a part of it.  We're conveniently located right off I-70 and I-25 and have plenty of free parking. We're only going to get better with the lightrail being put in right behind us.

2011 - the year we got our beer and wine license

Oh yes, that's right, we've got our beer and wine license!! We can legally serve anyone over 21 during classes and open pottery time as well. Definitely a big hit with customers! We have beer, wine by the glass, wine by the bottle, Mike's Hard drinks, Bud Light Lime-A-Rita's and of course champagne/mimosas! Plus an abundance of coffee, teas and sodas.

2013 - the year we've decided to expand to paint your own pottery

We've seen how much joy that PYOP can bring to people and we wanted to be a part of it.  Given the economy, we also wanted to help stay in business by keeping things fresh for not only our fantastic regular customers, but also get some new faces in here to have fun with us.  We are incredibly excited to share this with everyone, not to mention start making stuff ourselves!!

We couldn't have stayed in business this long without all our loyal customers,

students and fantastic employees.   HUGE thanks to you all!!!!

1999 - The year we were born!!

Bella Glass Studios opened Halloween 1999 and we've been bringing students knowledge of fusing along with fun and creativity the whole time. We LOVE teaching our passion, fusing, to folks of all ages and will continue to do so!  Come take a fun class today.
