It only comes every four years…

Happy Leap Day! In some old traditions, any man who rejects a woman’s proposal for marriage on Leap Day must buy her 12 pairs of gloves. Ha! (But maybe 12 pairs of gloves would prove useful in our Michigan Februaries.) In other news, here’s a funky flower to commemorate this funky day.

Feline Sensibility

Shiva contemplates color choices. What, you don’t leave your creative direction up to your cat?

Mighty, Mighty Furnace

Mighty, Mighty Furnace

If you’ve ever visited our studio, you’ve likely seen us working out of our three main furnaces – one that holds clear glass, one for reheating the glass while working on it, and one for warming the pipes. But did you know that we have a fourth MEGA furnace? This baby is reserved for the […]

An Apple a Day...

How fun is this apple ring holder? That apple looks good enough to eat…

Zany Zebra

Zany Zebra

A black and white Old School vessel is perfect for this Throwback Thursday. Those stripes are so zany and the red lip caps the whole thing off perfectly! Not for the faint of spirit, this piece…

Beacon & Batten

Remember Emily Donald, our guest artist from last year’s spring open studio? Her company, Beacon & Batten, is brimming with the best hand-crafted home goods. We’re particularly fond of the Striped Circle hand towels. Shop Beacon & Batten here!

Love Your Pet!

According to our wacky holiday calendar, it’s “Love Your Pet Day!” We’re on board. We love our studio kitty, Shiva. And thanks to our partnership with the Michigan Humane Society, she can eat her lunch in style with these awesome glass food dishes.

Tropical Waters

Tropical Waters

It’s about that time of year when we start dreaming about sandy beaches and warm afternoons under a hot sun. But for now, we’ll settle for daydreams inspired by our Tropical Waters flower.

Contemporary Crystal

Contemporary Crystal

Throwback time! When you hear “crystal chandelier” you probably think of a super traditional light fixture with faceted crystals and maybe electric candles. April’s version is… shall we say… a bit more contemporary. 🙂

Women in the Arts in 2015

We’re proud to be a studio that is owned and operated by a strong female artist. Articles like this can be disheartening, but are also important in bringing light to the distance we still have to go to reach equality in the arts. http://www.artnews.com/2015/12/30/women-art-status-in-2015/

This might be the first time we can say that one of our glass pieces is gracing the cover of a published book! Robin Moyer visited our studio to get the inside scoop on glassblowing for her book “A Gathering of Glass,” which features a glassblower as the main character. Check out more about this […]

April has been SEEN!

April has been SEEN!

“Working with glass is immediate and responsive. It has an organic quality in the way that it moves and flows, but it always surprises you.” We’re stoked that April was recently featured in the Detroit lifestyle magazine Neighborhood Seen!
