Marlow Gates is a second-generation broommaker, carrying on his father's tradition of craftsmanship in broommaking. Rumor has it that he has been tying brooms since he was five years old (bonus points to any student who brings in the tabloid article from 1977 which verifies this rumor!). With a degree in design from North Carolina State University, Marlow now joins his wife, Diana, in creating brooms as functional art at their studio in Big Sandy Mush, NC.
