Last Day of NAIAS

Today is the last day of the NAIAS in downtown Detroit. What a ride! April’s sculptures featured by Lincoln Motor Company have the sleek lines and contemporary flair that might remind you of your favorite new car.

Toys in Art

Looking for something to do this weekend? Head down to the Detroit Artist’s Market and visit their current exhibition, “It’s Like Toys In Here.” Three artists “convey their own child-like curiosity through art that combines serious themes with playful interface and fun aesthetics.” Sounds like a fun time to us! The exhibition runs through February 14th.

Colorful Carnations

Did You Know? The official flower for January is the carnation. These flowers have edible blooms and used to be used as flavoring agents in beer, wine and liquor! Carnations come in an array of colors, as do the beautiful flowers made here at epiphany studios.

Time is Ticking…

There’s only a few days left to hit up the NAIAS at the COBO Center in downtown Detroit! Not only are there cool cars to be seen, but April’s work is featured with Lincoln Motor Company as well!

Glassmaking Tools

Did You Know? There’s a special tool called a “battlemore” that’s especially for smoothing a flat bottom of a blown vessel or molded object. Learn about some other tools in this video by DC Glass Works.

MLK Day

Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day, everyone! Inspiring words from an inspiring man:

“If you can’t fly, then run.
If you can’t run, then walk.
If you can’t walk, then crawl.
But whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward.”

Making Mischief

The CCS Center Galleries will be opening a new show on January 23rd called “Making Mischief: Cynthia Greig, Jennifer Dalton, Alex Gingrow, Laurina Paperina and Scott Reeder.” The exhibition features works by these artists that scrutinize (and satirize!) the systems and behaviors unique to the art world and its inhabitants. See their Facebook page for more info:

Calling All Car-Lovers…

Today is the day, car-lovers! The North American International Auto Show is open to the public in downtown Detroit at the COBO Center. April created 6 custom pieces for Lincoln Motor Company to use in their display at shows throughout the United States.

Garnets Galore

The birthstone for January is the garnet! Even though garnets come in a variety of colors, you probably know it in its deep red form. The stone’s resemblance to a pomegranate seed prompted the name “garnet,” which comes from the word for seed. This piece, “Tempest,”  utilizes the beautiful red hue often seen in garnets.

Epiphany Nests

epiphany glass nests are inspired by the motions of sand and wind. These intricate pieces push the boundaries of contemporary glass and are made by sculpting multiple bits of clear glass on a spherical shape. The

nests sparkle like ornate chandeliers – the many strands of glass catch and reflect the ambient light.

Welcome, NAIAS!

Welcome to the Motor City, NAIAS! April created 6 sculptures for the Lincoln Motor Company that will be featured at NAIAS locations across the country.

Epiphany Glass in the News

A nice article by the Detroit News on April and her art!

The More You Know…

Did You Know? A fiery hot piece of glass can’t just cool down on any old shelf or table. In order to prevent the glass from cooling too quickly and becoming brittle, we use an annealing furnace, which starts at 900 degrees and slowly lowers the temp. Cool, right?

Artist in Action

Lino Tagliapietra is one of the world’s most renowned glass blowers. At age 11, he began apprenticing at a glass studio in his hometown of Murano, Italy, an Venetian island with a centuries-long history of glass-making. By age 21, he reached the level of “maestro” and now he’s been rocking the glass art world for decades. Check out this video that shows Tagliapietra in action!

The More You Know…

Did You Know? epiphany studios is the largest hot-glass blowing facility in the Midwest. Our hot tank furnace can hold 800 pounds of liquid glass!

NAIAS Coming Soon!

Watch out, Detroit! The North American International Auto Show is right around the corner. April’s work is being featured with the Lincoln Motor Company at select shows across the country. Here’s her piece from November’s Los Angeles show.

The More You Know…

What is “studio glass?” This term refers to the use of glass to create artistic sculptures or three-dimensional artworks. The American studio glass movement is pretty young – it started in 1962 when a chemist and a ceramist at the Toledo Museum of Art began experimenting with molten glass. In 1969, the museum constructed the Glass-Crafts Building, and became the first museum to build a studio specifically dedicated for teaching the art of glassblowing.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year from epiphany studios!

Did You Know? “Epiphany” means “insight into the essence of an object and/or material” and served as the foundational idea behind the studio’s beginnings back in 1993.
