Happy Women’s Equality Day! This special day was passed by Congress in 1971 to commemorate the passing of the 19th amendment on August 26, 1920 which granted women the right to vote. We are a studio owned and managed by women, so of course we’re in full…

Epiphany’s rainbow paperweights have always been popular. And why not? The range of color in these small objects is simply amazing.

We don’t want to think about it, but the end of summer is looming out there. The long days and endless nights are just so great, and April’s “Velo” seems like it’s made out of Michigan sunsets.

You know what time it is… Throwback Thursday! Today we’re looking fondly upon the striped splashes of yesteryear. The stripes applied to the outside of these vessels emphasize their curvaceous form. Not to mention, they look super spiffy!

We love how the glass fins on artist Curtis Pittman’s “Diamond Bloom” reflect the light at different times of the day in Scottsdale, Arizona. It’s crazy how this simple material can do so much and be manipulated in so many ways! (That must be why we love…

Artists Flora Mace and Joey Kirkpatrick created this gigantic bowl of glass fruit, “Still Life with Two Plums.” It’s bold, colorful, and reminiscent of the Michigan fruit we love. How ‘bout THEM apples??

Summer is a great time for dinner parties on the patio. Make the most of yours by serving a great wine and presenting it in a great decanter! This Saturn decanter is pure class with its simple shape. And that planetary ring does more than look nice – it…

Introduction

Born in Muskegon Michigan, a small town on the shores of Lake Michigan, April grew up enjoying many summers on sandy white beaches. A natural artist, her interest in form, color, and line were apparent since early childhood. Blessed with understanding parents, April was encouraged to focus her education on the arts; exploring music, dance, and many types of visual arts. Her talent allowed her to receive a scholarship to an exclusive private high school for the arts, getting a jump start on her career. She initially focused on ceramics, then in college, developed a passion for blowing glass. “I was in love with ceramics, but then I tried glassblowing and realized I never wanted to work in clay again, I’d found the thing I wanted to do for the rest of my life.”

April's passion for glass caused her to form "epiphany studios” while attending the College for Creative Studies in DetroitMI.  Since she graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Art, emphasis in glass, in the early ‘90s April has focused all of her talents on making glass.  For the past 17 years, she has owned and operated epiphany studios, located in PontiacMI. The studio is the largest, most sophisticated private studio of its kind in the Midwest.  Her work is exhibited in galleries worldwide, and featured in numerous private and corporate collections including those of Russian President Vladimir Putin, General Motors, The Detroit Regional Chamber of Commerce, Pfizer, Inc., Strategic Staffing Solutions, and Ross Controls.  April was recently featured as one of Crain’s Detroit Business’s 40 under 40 honorees for 2005.
