These small vessels are the mini-me to epiphany’s larger Zanfirico bowls. Although they stand a mere 7″ tall, they pack all the same punch and energy as their bigger counterparts. Perfect for nestling on a fireplace mantle or bookshelf among your other treasures. Posted in News | Leave a response Kitchen Accoutrements By Abby Groth on August 16, 2016 Who watches FOX 2? Keep an eye out for some very special decor – our Michigan Humane Society decanter and glasses grace the kitchen set. These fun decanter sets can be purchased at our studio or on our web store! Click “store” above to shop. Posted in News | Leave a response Splish, Splash, I was takin’ a bath… By Abby Groth on August 15, 2016 What do you do when your glass sculpture needs a bath? Take it outside and soak that baby down! (Much easier done in the summer than our Michigan winters…) Posted in News | Leave a response Lighting as Material By Abby Groth on August 14, 2016 Lighting makes all the difference with glass art! April’s new piece Evergreen is carefully spotlighted to throw beautiful shadows on the wall, magnifying the dimensionality of the piece. Concrete glass + intangible shadows = awesome composition. Posted in News | Leave a response Oldest Known Glass Factory Discovered! By Abby Groth on August 13, 2016 This is for all you history buffs out there – archaeologists have uncovered the remains of an ancient glass factory! It’s awesome to see that the medium we still work with today has lasted so long. Read more about the discovery here. Credit: Assaf Peretz, courtesy of Israel Antiquities Authority. Via www.livescience.com. Posted in News | Leave a response Save the Date By Abby Groth on August 12, 2016 Mark your calendars – we’re hosting flower-making sessions on October 15, which just so happens to be Sweetest Day! If you’re looking for a great date activity, look no further than making a glass bouquet with us! Posted in News | Leave a response 1,000 Forever Homes By Abby Groth on August 11, 2016 So many animals have been adopted at the new Michigan Humane Society’s Detroit facility – two cats made #999 and #1000 just yesterday, in fact! And with any purchase of our glass kitties, we’ll donate part back to this fantastic organization. Posted in News | Leave a response National WHAT Day?? By Abby Groth on August 10, 2016 We found out that today is “National Lazy Day,” but who can celebrate that holiday when there’s amazing glass art to be made? Pieces like this Blue Peaz Bowl don’t come together on their own… each pea is blown and assembled by hand to create the stunning finale. Posted in News | Leave a response POP Art! By Abby Groth on August 9, 2016 Tuesdays might not be the most thrilling day of the week, but we bet we can make yours a little brighter with this gorgeous shot of April’s “Primary Fete.” Those colors on a fresh white wall = pure visual delight! This piece has so much pop in it! Posted in News | Leave a response Meet Sherri and Jerry! By Abby Groth on August 8, 2016 Meet Sherri and Jerry! When we have events and open studios, we call on Sherri and Jerry, husband and wife duo extraordinaire! From sales to packing glass to chatting with our guests or clients, these folks are there for us. Their impressive knowledge about glassblowing is just another reason that they’re such a great asset for the studio! Posted in News | Leave a response 2,400 Degrees By Abby Groth on August 7, 2016 We’re finishing up our week of number crunching with an impressive stat… we work with our glass out of a furnace that heats up to 2,400? F. To put that in perspective, the surface of the sun is only a *bit* hotter at 10,000? F. So basically, glassblowers are some of the toughest, hottest people out there! Posted in News | Leave a response 52″ Diameter By Abby Groth on August 6, 2016 Our studio contains one of the largest and most sophisticated glory holes in the world. The glory hole is the chamber where glass is heated as it’s being blown and manipulated. The largest dimension of our glory hole is 52,” which means we can create single pieces of glass that are just a bit smaller than that. What’s your wingspan? 52” is probably almost as big as that! Posted in News | Leave a response 10 Ingredients By Abby Groth on August 5, 2016 Did you know that not all glass is created equal? The glass we use here is made up of 10 (count them!) ingredients: silica, soda ash, limestone, feldspar, lithium carbonate, sodium nitrate, zinc oxide, barium carbonate, fluorspar, and antimony oxide. You chemists out there will instantly recognize that when melted at 2000? this combination will produce crystal clear glass! Posted in News | Leave a response 3 Forms of Color By Abby Groth on August 4, 2016 There are 1, 2, 3 ways to add color to glass. Rods of concentrated color can be added to clear glass after heating them in a color warmer. Frit, which is coarsely ground glass, can be added to achieve a spotted or speckled look. Lastly, finely ground colored powder can be used to layer multiple colors or create a gradated appearance. If you know one thing about April’s work, it’s that color is the name of the game, so she employs all of these methods on a regular basis. Posted in News | Leave a response 2 Glassblowers By Abby Groth on August 3, 2016 In today’s installation of “Epiphany by the Numbers,” we’re counting 2 for the minimum number of glassblowers needed to create a work of art in the studio. Very few glass objects can be made by a single glassblower, that’s why this is a craft that relies on strong teamwork. Watching glassblowers work together is a bit like watching a dance – each member knows where to be and when to make sure the piece comes together smoothly! Posted in News | Leave a response Count with Us By Abby Groth on August 2, 2016 Count along with us this week as we share some fun facts about epiphany! We’ll begin today with big ol’ #1. We have 1 giant furnace for holding clear glass. This furnace has been going strong for about 16 years, which is quite impressive for a furnace. Eventually we will have to repair the crack and rebuild the furnace, but it still works in the meantime! This baby runs 24 hours a day, 365 days a year – our #1 workhorse! Posted in News | Leave a response Meet Mike! By Abby Groth on August 1, 2016 On this week’s edition of “Meet the Team,” we’d like you to meet Mike! When we need the handiest of handy men, we call Mike. He’s the definitive jack-of-all-trades, and assists with installations, engineering challenges, maintenance around the studio, and so much more! Thanks, Mike, for your amazing contributions to making this place run smoothly! Posted in News | Leave a response Cool Hues By Abby Groth on July 31, 2016 Moonlight Lily has to be one of our favorites. (Although who can really choose?) The cool colors are so calming, and then a little pop of rose is a fun surprise. Posted in News | Leave a response Stellar Studio By Abby Groth on July 30, 2016 Did you know that epiphany’s studio was built by the same person who designed and built the studios of Dale Chihuly, Lino Tagliapietra, Steuben and the Corning Museum? Pretty awesome! It’s great to have world-class facilities at your fingertips. Posted in News | Leave a response MHS Mega Marches By Abby Groth on July 29, 2016 All across the Detroit metro area, people are raising funds for the various Mega Marches in September! If you’re interested in joining up with these fun events, check out the Michigan Humane Society’s page for more information. Image from michiganhumane.org Posted in News | Leave a response Throwin’ it Back By Abby Groth on July 28, 2016 There’s nothing more Throwback Thursday worthy than a bunch of hot Old Schools! We don’t blame you if you’re drooling now. Posted in News | Leave a response Summertime By Abby Groth on July 27, 2016 As July winds down, it seems like summer is fading way too quickly. Even if you’re not a fan of seafood, April’s “Summer” panel for her Four Seasons series at the Stand Gastro Bistro exudes the laid-back ambiance of a warm evening by the shoreline. Posted in News | Leave a response Summer Second Sale! By Abby Groth on July 26, 2016 Tornado decanter: $360. Tornado decanter of second quality: $180. TWO decanters of second quality: Buy one get one half off! The joy of seeing a beautiful and functional piece of art in your own home? Priceless. And the BOGO applies to all seconds in the studio! Shop our Summer Second Sale this Wednesday and Thursday, 4-7 pm. See you here! Posted in News | Leave a response Meet Mary! By Abby Groth on July 25, 2016 It’s Monday, so we’re continuing our “Meet the Team” series. Today, we’d like you to meet Mary! Where would we be without the guiding light of our studio manager? We’d be in rough shape, that’s for sure. Mary runs this place like a boss, taking on everything from accounting to client relationships to events. Mary has been with the studio for about 5 years and we hope she’s here for many more! Posted in News | Leave a response 1 Tequila, 2 Tequila, 3 Tequila… By Abby Groth on July 24, 2016 Last week was National Ice Cream Day, but this week is a little bit more of a grown up holiday. It’s National Tequila Day! We get a lot of requests for tequila when we show off our liquor decanter sets at events. This beautiful gold set (made with real 23k gold!) is oh-so-classy. Posted in News | Leave a response Red + Blue = ? By Abby Groth on July 23, 2016 Let’s play a game to see if you’re a glass expert! True or false? Mixing blue and red glass frit will give you purple glass if you put the furnace at the hottest temperature possible. Posted in News | Leave a response Check us out on YouTube! By Abby Groth on July 22, 2016 We’ve been adding videos to our YouTube page recently. There are some pretty awesome shots of glassblowing in action here, so be sure to check it out! You can even subscribe to our channel if you want to stay in on the excitement. Posted in News | Leave a response Our paperweights are just right! By Abby Groth on July 21, 2016 Sometimes it’s nice to have a few fun items on hand for that tricky moment when you need a last minute-hostess or birthday gift. Our flower paperweights are perfect for pretty much any occasion and they come in pretty much any color! Posted in News | Leave a response Truth Booth By Abby Groth on July 20, 2016 The Truth Booth is a very cool art project organized by artists Ryan Alexiev, Jim Ricks, Will Sylvester and Hank Willis Thomas. Inside the inflatable speech bubble, visitors are asked to fill in the blank: “The truth is _____.” Responses are recorded on video and the wide array of answers is pretty eye-opening. The Truth Booth is coming to Detroit at the end of July and there will be several opportunities to see it – we definitely encourage you to go and speak your truth! Learn more about the Truth Booth. Image from Cause Collective Posted in News | Leave a response Weekends on the Lake By Abby Groth on July 19, 2016 It’s that time of year where everyone heads Up North for the weekends. April celebrated the Michiganders’ love for water and lakeside living in this “Lake Michigan Chandelier.” Posted in News | Leave a response Meet Chris! By Abby Groth on July 18, 2016 Every Monday for the next few weeks we’re going to introduce you to one of our team here at epiphany. First up, meet Chris! An alum of the College for Creative Studies, Chris studied Animation and Digital Media but soon fell in love with glassblowing and never looked back. He’s a rockstar in the studio, assisting April on custom projects and bringing his own flair to studio e with a series of ornaments and pumpkins. Hands up for one awesome studio assistant! Posted in News | Leave a response Delicious! By Abby Groth on July 17, 2016 It gets pretty hot in the glass shop this time of year. Good thing it’s National Ice Cream Day! Go out and get yourself a cone or two. What’s your favorite flavor? Posted in News | Leave a response Nest Vase Love By Abby Groth on July 16, 2016 We’re just over the moon for these little nest vases. Picking a favorite is nearly impossible… Posted in News | Leave a response #ColorLove By Abby Groth on July 16, 2016 We hope your Saturday is as carefree and relaxing as the calming colors in Violet Aqua Water Wall. Sparkly aquas + sea greens + deep purples = yes. Posted in News | Leave a response Christmas in July By Abby Groth on July 14, 2016 Throwback Thursday, “Christmas in July” edition! If you’ve ever wondered how April gets that perfect spiral on the Vivid Icicle ornaments, follow the link to our Facebook to see the mystery is revealed! Click here to see the Vivid Icicles being made! Posted in News | Leave a response Blingholder By Abby Groth on July 13, 2016 A heart ringholder is the perfect “just because” gift. Keep it by the kitchen sink or bedside table so you never lose your favorite jewelry! Posted in News | Leave a response Blast from the (Recent) Past By Abby Groth on July 12, 2016 Spring studio this year was a blast! We got some awesome photos from Detroit photographer Sebastian Sullen of our open studio and are having fun reliving the memories. Posted in News | Leave a response Physics is a Glassblower’s Friend By Abby Groth on July 11, 2016 Using centripetal force is one of the best ways to change the shape of hot glass quickly and evenly! Then a steel rod becomes an extension of April’s hand as she shapes the piece further. Check out the video here: https://www.instagram.com/p/BBVY02Xn7-j/?taken-by=epiphanyglass Posted in News | Leave a response Sitting Pretties By Abby Groth on July 10, 2016 “Prepare to be Blown Away!” We love this title! Thanks to Allison Rosbury and My City Magazine for a fantastic feature on April. Read the story here! Photo by Eric Dutro Posted in News | Leave a response Odds and Ends By Abby Groth on July 9, 2016 Do you know what this is? No, it’s not a pile of crushed ice… it’s our leftover clear glass! Whenever April blows glass, there are little pieces that get trimmed along the way. We throw these clear bits in a bin to cool down. We can recycle clear glass a few times before it loses the clarity that is so important for April’s work. Posted in News | Leave a response Catchin’ a few ZZZ’s… By Abby Groth on July 8, 2016 All work and no play makes Brahma a sleepy kitty. Happy Friday, everyone! Posted in News | Leave a response Throwback Thursday By Abby Groth on July 7, 2016 We haven’t done one of these in a while… it’s Throwback Thursday! “Floating Bubbles” graces the wall at the Hideout Restaurant in Hollwood, California. With its expansive size and dramatic lighting, we can imagine a great many selfies are taken up against this backdrop. Posted in News | Leave a response Go, go, go FIA! By Abby Groth on July 6, 2016 “This project is a gamechanger for us.” We echo the Flint Institute of Art’s director John Henry’s sentiments. We are happy to cheer on the Flint Institute of Arts as they break ground on their own hot shop! Very excited to see this fantastic museum invest in artmaking. Read on here. Posted in News | Leave a response Transformation Tuesday By Abby Groth on July 5, 2016 Today is “Transformation Tuesday.” Can you believe that something so sparkly, clear and beautiful starts out as a simple mix of powdered minerals? Add a little color and a whole lotta talent and voila! Posted in News | Leave a response Flower? Or Firework? By Abby Groth on July 4, 2016 We usually call these sculptures “lilies” but they could just as easily be fireworks for the 4th of July! We hope everyone is having a safe and fun holiday! Posted in News | Leave a response Gettin’ ready for the 4th! By Abby Groth on July 3, 2016 Our patriotic ornaments make a great statement throughout the summer. The bright colors and simple patterns are perfect for hanging in a brightly lit room – then add it to your Christmas tree in December! Posted in News | Leave a response Patriotic Ornaments By Abby Groth on July 2, 2016 The holiday weekend is upon us! April created a line of patriotic ornaments that are perfect to hang in your window. The little stars are called “murrine” and start out as a cylinder of cane that is sliced into tiny discs. Then the cross-section of a star is revealed and placed onto the hot glass in the desired pattern. We still have some of these ornaments available on our web shop… click “Store” above to shop our selection! Posted in News | Leave a response Busy Bees at epiphany By Abby Groth on July 1, 2016 Happy half birthday to the year 2016! What’s that saying… “Time flies when you’re having fun!” With a lot of projects on the horizon, this year is speeding along. We love being busy, though! April installing “Primary Fete,” 2010 Posted in News | Leave a response How to Beat the Dog Days By Abby Groth on June 30, 2016 It’s that time of year when everyone needs to make sure to stay hydrated – and that includes your furry friends! You can give your pets the royal treatment with one of our beautiful handblown glass pet bowls. Glass doesn’t leech toxins like metal or plastic, so it’s the perfect way to make sure your pet’s drinking water is safe. And the bottoms of our bowls are no skid so you can have no worries! Each bowl benefits the Michigan Humane Society. Posted in News | Leave a response Making Music from Glassblowing By Abby Groth on June 29, 2016 If you’ve ever watched even 2 minutes of glassblowing, you know what an amazing spectacle it can be. These artists are taking the performativity of glassblowing to a whole new level! Posted in News | Leave a response Some Like It Hot By Abby Groth on June 28, 2016 It’s getting hot, hot, HOT here in Michigan. But the 90-degree temps are nothing compared to the blazing 2400 degrees of our reheating chamber. This gig isn’t for the weak… Posted in News | Leave a response Lazy Monday Morning By Abby Groth on June 27, 2016 Monday mornings have got us feeling a little like April’s kinetic sculpture… lazily twirling whenever the breeze wafts by. Posted in News | Leave a response Z is for Zanfirico By Abby Groth on June 26, 2016 Today is our last day of the epiphany alphabet and it’s a good one! Around here, Z is for “Zanfirico!” These awesome vessels are crafted with colored cane that we make here in the studio. April arranges pieces of cane in various patterns and then the cane is picked up with a gather of clear hot glass. See Marc in action as he picks up the cane for a few zany Zanfiricos. Posted in News | Leave a response Y is for You! By Abby Groth on June 25, 2016 Y is for “You! (Yes, YOU!)” We probably don’t say it enough. Without the support of our friends near and far, epiphany studios wouldn’t exist. Whether you’ve bought an artwork, attended our open studio events, or introduced us to your friends, we appreciate YOU! epiphany glass spring open studio 2016 Posted in News | Leave a response X is for X-ing Boundaries By Abby Groth on June 24, 2016 Oy. Today’s letter of the day is X… before you judge us for this one, we challenge you to find a glassblowing term that starts with X! In the meantime, X is for “X-ing Boundaries” (as in *Crossing* Boundaries). Did you know that glassblowing is a field largely dominated by men? While we love ourselves some burly glassblowing hunks, you gotta give it up for April’s hustle and determination to make a name for herself despite the odds! Posted in News | Leave a response W is for Wine By Abby Groth on June 23, 2016 We’re celebrating everyone’s favorite letter … W is for Wine! The epiphany decanters are always a classy statement. From the performativity of a Tornado decanter to the cool and sophisticated Kayan, epiphany decanters are truly works of art. Posted in News | Leave a response V is for Volcano By Abby Groth on June 22, 2016 Long-time epiphany fans will appreciate this one… V is for Volcano! April recently made a few of these throwback pieces and we captured the moment for you. The Volcano is a classic epiphany piece that pairs a base of clear bitwork with a gracefully waving body. Posted in News | Leave a response U is for Unstoppable! By Abby Groth on June 21, 2016 We may be biased, but we think U is for “Unstoppable!” April’s work continues to evolve as she refines her skills – even a master glass artist keeps growing and learning every day! She’s not stopping anytime soon… Posted in News | Leave a response T is for Tweezers By Abby Groth on June 20, 2016 T is for “Tweezers” and no, we’re not making any comments about your eyebrows… Our tweezers are HUGE and used in a lot of different projects. If you’ve ever made a glass flower with us, you’ve used the tweezers to shape the petals! Posted in News | Leave a response S is for… SO much! By Abby Groth on June 19, 2016 As you can imagine, S is a big letter for us. S is for “Sculpture,” “studio e,” “Splash Bowls” and “Shiva” (our “Studio” kitty)! All of these S words are just part of a day’s work at epiphany glass. Jealous yet? Posted in News | Leave a response R is for Rondelle By Abby Groth on June 18, 2016 Piggybacking off of yesterday’s post, we’re talking about another of the elements April employs for her sculptures. Today is R for “Rondelle!” A rondelle is a flat, circular disk that can be made in any size (as long as it can still fit in the reheating chamber!) The rondelle is created by spinning the pipe and taking advantage of centripetal force. Posted in News | Leave a response Q is for Ques By Abby Groth on June 17, 2016 Bet you thought today would have us tripped up, but we are celebrating Q for “Ques!” Most of April’s sculptures involve a lot of smaller glass pieces combined together to create a larger work. A “Que” is one type of these smaller pieces – a flat ribbon of glass that twists or curls in a unique line. All of the Ques have a unique shape, but they become recognizable by their general style and proportion. Posted in News | Leave a response P is for Punty Rod By Abby Groth on June 16, 2016 Today’s letter is P and our word might be new to you. P is for “Punty Rod” and we can’t make glass without one! This is the rod that attaches to the hot glass and allows us to hold onto the glass while we’re shaping it. Posted in News | Leave a response O is for Ornament By Abby Groth on June 15, 2016 O is for “Ornaments” at epiphany and even though it’s not the holidays, we’re of the opinion that these gorgeous baubles can be hung all year round! Posted in News | Leave a response N is for Nest By Abby Groth on June 14, 2016 Whether it’s one of the originals or a brand new piece, around here, N is for “Nest!” The nest works show the many ways hot glass can be used – from the delicate strands of clear glass to the clarity of each colored core, the nest vases have it all! Posted in News | Leave a response M is for Mark By Abby Groth on June 13, 2016 Where would we be without M for “Marc?” One of our talented glassblowers, Marc VandenBerg brings a fantastic set of skills to our studio and helps us with a multitude of projects. One of Marc’s fortes is lampworking, which is a detailed sculpting of glass. Follow him over on Instagram at @marco2150 to see some great videos of his work. Posted in News | Leave a response L is for Lilies By Abby Groth on June 12, 2016 April’s most recent show focuses on L for “Lilies!” If you get a chance to make it over to the Inn at Harbor Shores in St. Joseph, Michigan, you can see “View Through a Colored Prism,” an exhibit which highlights April’s large floral sculptures. (Not to mention, you can check out L’eau d’Vie – the largest chandelier April has ever made!) Photo by Don Campbell, Herald-Palladium Staff Photo by Don Campbell, Herald-Palladium Staff Posted in News | Leave a response K is for Kitties By Abby Groth on June 11, 2016 K might be our favorite letter of the whole alphabet because K stands for “Kitties!” April is a huge animal lover and it shows through everything from our partnership with the Michigan Humane Society to the newest member of our team, Brahma. If you want to be part of the furry love here, you can shop our pet products on the epiphany webstore. Click on “store” above and then “MHS Gifts.” Posted in News | Leave a response J is for Jacks By Abby Groth on June 10, 2016 Glassblowers use a very unique set of tools, one of which is our letter of the day, J for “Jacks!” The jacks consist of two long, metal arms that are connected at a spring-loaded joint. In this video, you can see April using the jacks to narrow the neck of the glass bubble she’s working with. No project happens without the jacks! Posted in News | Leave a response I is for Innovative By Abby Groth on June 9, 2016 Over the years, epiphany glass has created some truly unique glass art, and that’s why I stands for “Innovative.” Whether it’s the flared body of a massive Volcano, or the delicate strands of a nest vase, April has been making work that’s truly one-of-a-kind. Watching her push the limits of glass on a daily basis is a pretty cool thing! #epiphanyABC Posted in News | Leave a response H is for Hotshop By Abby Groth on June 8, 2016 ABCDEFG… H! Now that we’re back on track with our #epiphanyABC, you might be able to guess that H is for “Hotshop!” This name is especially apt as the weather warms up outside, giving our air conditioner a run for its money. April and the team start working extra early in the summer to beat the heat. Posted in News | Leave a response F is for Flowers (and Forgetting…) By Abby Groth on June 7, 2016 Whoops – when we asked you if you knew your ABC’s, we should have double checked our own kindergarten knowledge…. We totally skipped F! Which is a shame, because F stands for “Flowers” here at epiphany! Not only does our studio have a sweet little garden outside, we’ve also got pretty flowers on the inside (and those last through the rough Michigan winters, too)! Posted in News | Leave a response G is for Glory Hole By Abby Groth on June 6, 2016 The epiphany alphabet gets a little crazy when it comes to the letter G! Around here, G is for “Glass,” “Gallery,” “Gifts,” and “Gaffer” (the word for a professional Glassblower.) But maybe we’re most fond of G for “Glory Hole,” the hottest reheating chamber on the block. If you’re feeling gutsy, take a whirl with a piece of glass in this video. #epiphanyABC Posted in News | Leave a response E is for epiphany! By Abby Groth on June 5, 2016 Is it cheating if we say that E is for “epiphany?” Well, we’re happy to “Educate” you on the “Evolution” of our business’s “Epithet!” When April started “epiphany” in 1996, she was “Exploring” terms that could describe her “Expertise” in creating art. “epiphany” means an insight in to the “Essence” of an object or material. That’s “Exactly” what she was doing with her creative “Experiments” in glass. And the rest is history! We hope this lesson has been “Edifying.” Posted in News | Leave a response D is for Decanter By Abby Groth on June 4, 2016 D is for “Decanter” here at epiphany! Over the years, April has developed several unique designs that not only perform but look good doing it. A decanter might be a piece of functional glass, but there is definitely a fine art to making one. #epiphanyABC Posted in News | Leave a response C is for Chris By Abby Groth on June 3, 2016 In the epiphany alphabet, C stands for “Chris,” our studio assistant who rocks our socks! Unlike many art forms, glassblowing is definitely not a solo act. Most recently, Chris was part of the team that made over 500 glass tumblers for a special Detroit Grand Prix project. That’s persistence! #epiphanyABC Posted in News | Leave a response B is for Bubble By Abby Groth on June 2, 2016 We’re continuing on with our epiphany ABC’s today and if you’re just joining us, have no fear! We’re only on B, which around here stands for “Bubble!” Many of April’s large commissions utilize the basic element of a glass bubble to create something great and marvelous. These chandeliers are the perfect example of the power of creativity. #epiphanyABC Posted in News | Leave a response Learn your ABC’s! By Abby Groth on June 1, 2016 Do you know your ABC’s? You’re probably thinking, “Of course I do, DUH!” But do you know your epiphany ABC’s? School may be out for the summer, but we’re going to teach you a thing or two. At epiphany glass, A is for “Annealer,” the special furnace that the glass goes into to cool down at a slow and steady pace. This removes stress from the glass so that it doesn’t break as easily. Don’t be fooled, the annealer is HOT too – starting out around 900 degrees. (Oh yeah, and it goes without saying that A stands for “April”… ) Posted in News | Leave a response What Do You See? By Abby Groth on May 31, 2016 Happy Tuesday (that probably feels like a Monday if you had the day off yesterday)! This is a fun wall piece that reminds us of paper clips or bobby pins. Such simple forms, such a great juxtaposition! Posted in News | Leave a response Stars + Stripes By Abby Groth on May 30, 2016 Happy Memorial Day! We hope you’re out there celebrating the good people who have sacrificed for our country. Posted in News | Leave a response Zoom, Zoom! By Abby Groth on May 29, 2016 The Detroit Grand Prix is right around the corner! April’s “Racer” swoops with the zip and movement of any great racecar. Posted in News | Leave a response The PERFECT Gift! By Abby Groth on May 28, 2016 We get it. It can be tough (even impossible!) to buy art for someone else. What color, what style, will it “go?” That’s why we’re now offering epiphany gift cards! These can be purchased in any amount over $25 and make the perfect gift …. You can’t go wrong! Posted in News | Leave a response Garden Party By Abby Groth on May 27, 2016 We’re excited to be going back to the Garden Party again this year! This is a great fundraiser that supports local students pursue their education in trade programs such as culinary studies and applied technologies. We can’t think of anything more worthy! We’ll be featuring our full line of beautiful decanters this year! Learn more here. Posted in News | Leave a response New Kitties in the Shop By Abby Groth on May 26, 2016 We just updated our web shop with new glass kitties! These fun pieces have far and away been the most popular from our Michigan Humane Society series. New items include a few sleeping kitties – these go quickly, so nab them while you can! Click “Store” to shop. Posted in News | Leave a response 360o View By Abby Groth on May 25, 2016 “Rabbit Lives at Claire’s House” is certainly our new favorite sculpture. So many little surprises in this one! Posted in News | Leave a response The Glass Age Continues By Abby Groth on May 24, 2016 Ever dropped your phone to find the glass totally shattered? Those days may soon be long behind us… part II to yesterday’s sweet video on advancements in glass. (Plus a great high-speed camera capture of a St. Rupert’s drop!) Posted in News | Leave a response The Glass Age By Abby Groth on May 23, 2016 Take a few minutes today to watch this really awesome video by the Mythbusters dudes. We bet you’ll learn something you never knew before – like that the internet would probably not exist without glass! (Not to mention, their high-speed cameras are AWESOME.) Posted in News | Leave a response Be a Friend of Art! By Abby Groth on May 22, 2016 April has always been involved in the local arts community. As a board member of the Friends of Modern and Contemporary Art at the DIA, she gets to help plan awesome programming for those who love contemporary art! If that’s YOU, head on over to the FMCA Facebook page and give them a follow – they post fun articles on art and announcements about local events! Find their Facebook page here. Get involved with the FMCA and be a part of the art scene at the DIA! Posted in News | Leave a response Ah, the memories… By Abby Groth on May 21, 2016 We’re in the process of creating a new website and so we’re re-editing a LOT of photos! This means a daily walk down memory lane. This sculpture takes us way back to 2004 when April started making her gorgeous lilies. This “Wing Lily” looks like it’s about to taking off in flight! Posted in News | Leave a response Who Wants to be a Millionaire? By Abby Groth on May 20, 2016 According to our wacky calendar, today is “Be a Millionaire” day. What would you do with a million dollars? We’d probably fire up the giant furnace and make some pieces just for fun. Posted in News | Leave a response I Spy with my little eye… By Abby Groth on May 16, 2016 FOX 2 in Detroit just installed a new kitchen for their cooking segments and it’s totally outfitted with April’s work! Let’s play “I spy.” How many epiphany pieces can you find? Posted in News | Leave a response Remembering Loved Ones By Abby Groth on May 15, 2016 Did you know that you can keep your memories of a loved one who has passed away in a beautiful paperweight? Cremated ashes are transformed into delicate bubbles when combined with clear and colored glass. Posted in News | Leave a response Celebrity Chat By Abby Groth on May 14, 2016 Our very own epiphany “celebrity” was interviewed by the Michigan Humane Society in their recent issue of Michiganimals! Since this interview, April has adopted another little girl kitty, too! Posted in News | Leave a response Color, color, color By Abby Groth on May 13, 2016 Happy Friday! Just a little shot of April’s personal collection of paperweights. Gorgeous! Posted in News | Leave a response Raffling the Rabbit By Abby Groth on May 12, 2016 “Rabbit Lives at Claire’s House” has extravagant vibrancy and color. This piece traveled to Flint where it will be raffled off at the Flint Institute of Art’s Party, their annual summer fundraiser. This event is a great way to support one of our state’s major art institutions, not to mention you could go home with this beauty! Get tickets here!

This piece is such a fun celebration of nature and color! Posted in News | Leave a response Smilin’ at epiphany By Abby Groth on April 26, 2016 Nothing gets our guests smiling more than the moment when they see their own creation come to life. You can make a glass flower with us at our spring show and experience the fun for yourself! We’ll be open May 7-8 and we still have open sessions on both days. Call us at 248-745-3786 to reserve your spot. Posted in News | Leave a response Whiskey and Ivory By Abby Groth on April 25, 2016 If this chandelier doesn’t send your heart pitter-pattering, we don’t know what to tell ya! The subtle colors of whiskey and ivory provide a surprising but chic contrast to the muted pink walls. Posted in News | Leave a response Chanel Thinking Outside the (Glass) Box By Abby Groth on April 24, 2016 A former townhouse in Amsterdam gets a stunning makeover with a facade of glass. This is such an awesome and unique way to integrate glass into architecture. Glass always seems so fragile, but used in the right way it can be an extraordinarily strong material! See the full story here. Photos by Daria Scagliola and Stijn Brakkee, from dezeen.com Posted in News | Leave a response Party Prep By Abby Groth on April 23, 2016 We’re getting the studio so fresh and so clean today for an event that was donated to the College for Creative Studies wine auction last fall. We love these events because we know the funds go to such a great cause! Posted in News | Leave a response Don’t Miss Out! By Abby Groth on April 22, 2016 In case you missed it, our glass is on display at the Bloomfield Public Library! Our mini show is only up until April 28, so be sure to stop by to see it before it’s gone! Posted in News | Leave a response Try your hand at glass! By Abby Groth on April 21, 2016 Have you reserved your spot to try your hand at glassblowing at our spring show? It’s pretty hard to do glassblowing at home (we don’t recommend playing with fire unattended…) so why not take the opportunity to use our state-of-the-art facilities? Call us at 248-745-3786 and we’ll get you set up! Posted in News | Leave a response Extra, Extra! By Abby Groth on April 18, 2016 Whenever April makes a large sculpture there are always pieces leftover. And what do we do with all those extras? Sometimes they get made into coordinating artwork as in the case of “Turchina Filirana.” The clients were so in love with their wall piece that they requested a second, smaller table piece. Good thing there’s all those spare parts… Posted in News | Leave a response Bow Wow! By Abby Groth on April 17, 2016 Today we’re spending the morning cuddling puppies and kittens at the Michigan Humane Society’s Bow Wow Brunch! Have we made you jealous? This Pawesome (ha. Ha. Ha.) event raises funds for homeless animals in our city. Such a great cause! This retriever/husky mix, “Snow,” is currently available for adoption at the MHS. Find more info about snow here. We love how his cute ears look just like our pups! Snow, a siberian husky/labrador retriever mix. Photo from michiganhumane.org. Posted in News | Leave a response Stella’s Got Her Groove Back By Abby Groth on April 16, 2016 You don’t have to be a oenophile to enjoy an epiphany decanter. This Stella decanter would look just lovely displayed as a piece of art. Beauty and function coming together as one? Perfect. Stella Decanter Posted in News | Leave a response New Kitty on the Block By Abby Groth on April 15, 2016 We’ve got new kitties in our studio! Our spring show will feature these sweet friends in a multitude of colors. Posted in News | Leave a response Throwback Thursday! By Abby Groth on April 14, 2016 Time for a little Throwback Thursday!

To highlight our craft, the Bloomfield Township Public Library is displaying some of April’s works at their location on Telegraph and Lone Pine Road. Head over to see them – beautiful glass in an equally beautiful library! Posted in News | Leave a response Treat Your Mom! By Abby Groth on April 8, 2016 Sometimes the perfect gift isn’t a thing, it’s an experience! Our Spring Open Studio is over Mother’s Day weekend this year, and what better way to celebrate than treating your mom to a glassblowing session? Pick up a gift card for $50 and let her make her own glass flower at our studio – it’s a lot of fun! Posted in News | Leave a response Springy Zanfirico Bowls By Abby Groth on April 7, 2016 New Zanfirico bowls will star at our Spring Open Studio. These beautiful bowls are a favorite of art collectors and glass art lovers alike. To make them, April and her team utilize traditional Italian techniques to create patterns out of handmade cane. Each one is unique – we never use the same pattern twice! Posted in News | Leave a response Instagram Specials By Abby Groth on April 6, 2016 Have you been loving our inside-look glassblowing videos?

Posted in News | Leave a response Gift Cards Available By Abby Groth on April 4, 2016 We have some exciting news! We are now offering epiphany glass gift cards! These cards are the perfect way to give someone a flower-making session at our Spring Open Studio. (Hint, hint, stellar Mother’s Day idea!) Posted in News | Leave a response Pets on Parade By Abby Groth on April 3, 2016 A few weeks ago, each and every resident of the old MHS facility in Detroit trotted, walked and ran down the street to the brand spankin’ new animal care center (with plenty of stops to sniff along the way). You won’t regret watching this pet parade video – see what the MHS is all about and you’ll understand why we continue to support this amazing organization. Posted in News | Leave a response epiphany Colors the WHOLE Rainbow! By Abby Groth on April 2, 2016 April (the month, not the person!) has arrived and that means spring is REALLY on its way, right? We have to admit though, we’re a bit sad that March and the epiphany rainbow is over. It was so much fun to see April’s (the person’s, not the month’s) work through the color spectrum. Let’s enjoy it one last time… Posted in News | Leave a response Fresh Spaghetti! By Abby Groth on April 1, 2016 The farm to table trend is nothing new – check out these spaghetti farmers in Switzerland! Posted in News | Leave a response epiphany Colors the Rainbow: Clear By Abby Groth on March 31, 2016 Today marks the last day of our epiphany rainbow! We hope you’ve enjoyed our travels through the chromatic spectrum. We’re ending the rainbow with the most classic “color” for glass – crystal clear. April’s crystal chandelier is a pure celebration of the media of glass. Sparkly from every angle, this piece de resistance is just fab! Posted in News | Leave a response epiphany Colors the Rainbow: Gray By Abby Groth on March 30, 2016 The smoky gray tones of this swan sculpture are anything but dreary! Sometimes a neutral palette is the most sophisticated way to go, especially if you start off with a gorgeous, clear embellished base. Posted in News | Leave a response epiphany Colors the Rainbow: Lavender By Abby Groth on March 29, 2016 Two lavender curls top off this “Burberries” sculpture. We love the repeating circular forms layered over each other in this piece. Posted in News | Leave a response epiphany Colors the Rainbow: Violet By Abby Groth on March 28, 2016 April made this piece for a Florida residence and it perfectly complements the mood and feel of a seaside life. The violet curls really add dimension and depth to the field. Posted in News | Leave a response Happy Easter! By Abby Groth on March 27, 2016 We’re vibing on the springy colors of the Candy Shop Chandelier today. We hope all of the Easter eggs you find are full of yummy candy! Posted in News | Leave a response epiphany Colors the Rainbow: Purple By Abby Groth on March 27, 2016 One of the coolest parts of transparent glass is the way the colors deepen when you look through several layers at once. This purple thistle sculpture is the perfect example! Posted in News | Leave a response epiphany Colors the Rainbow: Indigo By Abby Groth on March 26, 2016 These little burberries are the most fantastic indigo! Sometimes you don’t need a lot going on to make a sculpture truly shine. Posted in News | Leave a response epiphany Colors the Rainbow: Navy By Abby Groth on March 25, 2016 We’re nearing the end of our epiphany rainbow, but we’re getting into some of the prettiest colors! Blues and purples are always popular. This gorgeous lily is full of shades of navy. The play of light on a piece like this makes it seem different every time you see it. Posted in News | Leave a response epiphany Colors the Rainbow: Royal Blue By Abby Groth on March 24, 2016 There aren’t too many royal blue flowers in nature, but the great thing about glass is that you can make it any color you want! This bright color looks so deep and reflective on the petals of one of April’s newest flowers. Posted in News | Leave a response epiphany Colors the Rainbow: Cornflower By Abby Groth on March 23, 2016 Cornflower blue is such a lovely shade and some of the vertebrae on “Backbone” are just the ticket! When April made this sculpture for the Detroit Regional Chamber of Commerce, she included one “bone” for each of the chamber’s 100 years of activity. Local businesses make up the backbone of our community – we’re glad to be part of this body of people! Posted in News | Leave a response epiphany Colors the Rainbow: Sky Blue By Abby Groth on March 22, 2016 This one is a fan favorite! “L’eau d’Vie” is definitely the largest hanging piece April has undertaken. With hundreds of hanging components, the visual effect is certainly impactful. We love the sky blue color that makes up so many of the hand-blown orbs. Posted in News | Leave a response epiphany Colors the Rainbow: Seafoam By Abby Groth on March 21, 2016 Seafoam dreams await for you within this sweet sculpture. April achieves a soft, wrapped-up feel here – quite the feat when you’re dealing with glass! Posted in News | Leave a response epiphany Colors the Rainbow: Turquoise By Abby Groth on March 20, 2016 The epiphany splash bowls are definitely a fan favorite. The stripes of this turquoise striped bowl shows off the curving perimeter of the vessel. Simple choices like color and pattern really count in a piece like this! Posted in News | Leave a response epiphany Colors the Rainbow: Olive By Abby Groth on March 19, 2016 Olive is our color of the day and we’re really loving the muted green tones in April’s “Earth” sculpture from the Four Elements series. Posted in News | Leave a response epiphany Colors the Rainbow: Emerald By Abby Groth on March 18, 2016 Legend says that when you look at mythical Medusa with her snake-filled hair, you’ll turn to stone. Not so much with April’s “Medusa” nest. That emerald green color teeming throughout is just stunning! Posted in News | Leave a response epiphany Colors the Rainbow: Kelly Green By Abby Groth on March 17, 2016 Happy St. Patrick’s Day! What a coincidence that our color of the day for the epiphany rainbow is kelly green! April’s “Delta” sculpture for Strategic Staffing Solutions is one of our favorites. Although its completely monochrome, the beautiful curls and swirls make this sculpture exciting and dynamic. Posted in News | Leave a response epiphany Colors the Rainbow: Lime By Abby Groth on March 16, 2016 It’s a day for bright, sassy LIME as we color the rainbow here at epiphany! This little sketch sculpture is almost exactly the color of the citrus fruit. Now who’s ready for a little lime in their margarita? “You put da lime in da coconut and drink it all up…” Posted in News | Leave a response epiphany Colors the Rainbow: Chartreuse By Abby Groth on March 15, 2016 If you’ve been following us on Instagram, you may have noticed that April uses the word “juicy” to describe a particularly great sculpture. This sculpture is named “Juicy” and ow, ow! That chartreuse color is oh-so-bold. Posted in News | Leave a response epiphany Colors the Rainbow: Tan By Abby Groth on March 14, 2016 Tan probably doesn’t strike you as the most exciting of colors, but today this beige gets an epiphany rainbow makeover! “Sahara Dancer” has anthropomorphic qualities as the two dancers engage in their tango. Posted in News | Leave a response epiphany Colors the Rainbow: Gold By Abby Groth on March 13, 2016 “All that glitters is gold…” April’s Gold Cirrus Chandelier certainly sparkles like all things gold! The rich color is perfect for its warm surroundings. Posted in News | Leave a response epiphany Colors the Rainbow: Yellow By Abby Groth on March 12, 2016 Today’s color is yellow and this sculpture actually seems to be celebrating the vibrancy and excitement of its own hue! We see a dancer leaning backward and reaching up with an extended arm. This is the best part about art – seeing something beautiful and inspirational in simple shapes and forms. Posted in News | Leave a response epiphany Colors the Rainbow: Lemon By Abby Groth on March 11, 2016 The color lemon feels so fresh after a long winter. “Insolent Dragon” rears its bright head with attitude. It certainly spices up this contemporary dining room. Posted in News | Leave a response epiphany Colors the Rainbow: Peach By Abby Groth on March 10, 2016 Peach is the color of the hour in this sculpture, “Three Sahara.” Each curl is such a subtle, sophisticated color. We’re loving it. Posted in News | Leave a response epiphany Colors the Rainbow: Tangerine By Abby Groth on March 9, 2016 The glass really glows in this shot of “Solar Flare” for today’s color, tangerine. This hot color is so spicy! Posted in News | Leave a response epiphany Colors the Rainbow: Orange By Abby Groth on March 8, 2016 To highlight today’s color orange, we have a really unique sculpture made for the Farmington Hills City Hall. The glass blades slowly spin as air moves throughout the atrium of the building. April hasn’t made a ton of kinetic sculptures, but this one is pretty darn cool. Posted in News | Leave a response epiphany Colors the Rainbow: Mango By Abby Groth on March 7, 2016 We see shades of mango in April’s “Feu Nymphe.” In fact, this curly pyramid contains a lot of shades of tropical fruits – we see oranges, bananas, pineapple… and now we’re hungry. Posted in News | Leave a response epiphany Colors the Rainbow: Red By Abby Groth on March 6, 2016 Day 6 of our epiphany rainbow is red. Sometimes we overlook primary colors as too plain, but “Red Sentinel” destroys any notion of plain or boring. This sculpture stands at the ready and looks totally fierce. Posted in News | Leave a response epiphany Colors the Rainbow: Merlot By Abby Groth on March 5, 2016 Merlot makes us think of that perfect glass of red wine, but today we’re eyeing the wine-colored hues in this peaz bowl. Each pea is blown individually and then assembled into the bowl shape after the glass cools. The result is a funky, textured bowl that makes a bold statement. Posted in News | Leave a response epiphany Colors the Rainbow: Magenta By Abby Groth on March 4, 2016 Today’s color of magenta is wrapped up in April’s sculpture “The Tempest.” Shakespeare’s play featured a wild storm and this sculpture is just as wild and tangled as any stormy night. The jewel tone color of the sculpture just makes the storm more furious! April Wagner, “Tempest,” 2009, 36″ x 6’6″ x 18″ Posted in News | Leave a response epiphany Colors the Rainbow: Fuchsia By Abby Groth on March 3, 2016 Day 3 of our epiphany rainbow calls for this fuchsia nest vase. These minis have been pretty popular lately. They’re the perfect size for a single bloom but look equally lovely as a standalone statement piece. (Who could ever get enough of those delicate crystal strands??) Posted in News | Leave a response epiphany Colors the Rainbow: Pink By Abby Groth on March 2, 2016 The epiphany name is well-known for producing stunning paperweights in a rainbow of colors. Today’s color is pink and we are loving these paperweight’s particular hues. They are cheery and rich and happy, happy, happy! Posted in News | Leave a response epiphany Colors the Rainbow By Abby Groth on March 1, 2016 It’s March here in Michigan and that means spring is likely still a ways off. So in the interim, we’re going to blow up your newsfeed with color, color, and more COLOR! Throughout the month of March, we’re going to color the rainbow with epiphany. We’re starting with the most lovely shade of rose, embraced here in one of April’s Que sculptures. Posted in News | Leave a response It only comes every four years… By Abby Groth on February 29, 2016 Happy Leap Day! In some old traditions, any man who rejects a woman’s proposal for marriage on Leap Day must buy her 12 pairs of gloves. Ha! (But maybe 12 pairs of gloves would prove useful in our Michigan Februaries.) In other news, here’s a funky flower to commemorate this funky day.

But did you know that we have a fourth MEGA furnace? This baby is reserved for the super huge pieces of glass. Wowza!
