“Rabbit Lives at Claire’s House” is one of April’s newest sculptures commissioned for the Flint Institute of Arts annual Party fundraiser. This piece is such a fun celebration of nature and color!

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.

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!

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…

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…

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…

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!

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…

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.

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.
