It’s the last day of August, which means fall is just around the corner. Soon we’ll be harvesting fall fruits and veggies. These beautiful gourds that Aprils created for the Stand in Birmingham are a foretaste of what’s to come!

These photos show just how dynamic glass art can be when it’s hung on a plain wall with some dramatic lighting. The shadows created by the twisting arms of “Ultra Violet” make the piece seem so much larger than it is and add extra energy to the already wild form!

April’s Opal Chandelier is a beautiful mix of contemporary colors and forms. The blues and aquas are punctuated with hints of gold and just the slightest touch of purple. This photo shows off how well the light matches the resident’s beautiful rug, too. One of April’s strengths as an artist is assessing the current space […]

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!

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

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 it so much.) https://www.codaworx.com/project/diamond-bloom-scottsdale-public-art

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.

When you see a piece of blown glass that has a beautiful even stripe pattern on it, chances are it was made in a fashion similar to this! You need even spinning of the rod and a thin string of glass applied around the blown glass. This is why glassblowing is a team effort – […]
