Since Robert Heinlein said “Butterflies are self-propelled flowers,” does that mean that April’s “Flutterby” counts for our flower-of-the-day? We say yes! Follow @epiphanyglass//

“Primary Fete” is a piece of April’s from 2010. It’s abstract, but we can’t help but seeing an explosion of flowers in this one! Follow @epiphanyglass//

We call these pieces “lilies” in the studio, but they also look like a splash. What do you think about this sculpture? Follow @epiphanyglass//

master glass artist
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.
