Whiskey and Ivory

Whiskey and Ivory

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.

Chanel Thinking Outside the (Glass) Box

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 material! See the full story here.

Party Prep

Party Prep

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!

Don’t Miss Out!

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!

Try your hand at glass!

Try your hand at glass!

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 at 248-745-3786 and we’ll get you set up!

Extra, Extra!

Extra, Extra!

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 that they requested a second, smaller table piece. Good thing there’s […]

Bow Wow!

Today we’re spending the morning cuddling puppies and kittens at the Michigan Humane Society’s Bow Wow Brunch! Have we made you jealous? This Pawesome (ha. Ha. Ha.) event raises funds for homeless animals in our city. Such a great cause! This retriever/husky mix, “Snow,” is currently available for adoption at the MHS. Find more info […]

Stella’s Got Her Groove Back

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.

New Kitty on the Block

We’ve got new kitties in our studio! Our spring show will feature these sweet friends in a multitude of colors.

As always, a portion of our proceeds will benefit the […]

Springy Zanfirico Bowls

Springy Zanfirico Bowls

New Zanfirico bowls will star at our Spring Open Studio. These beautiful bowls are a favorite of art collectors and glass art lovers alike. To make them, April and her team utilize traditional Italian techniques to create patterns out of handmade cane. Each one is unique – we never use the same pattern twice!

Pets on Parade

A few weeks ago, each and every resident of the old MHS facility in Detroit trotted, walked and ran down the street to the brand spankin’ new animal care center (with plenty of stops to sniff along the way). You won’t regret watching this pet parade video – see what the MHS is all about […]

epiphany Colors the WHOLE Rainbow!

epiphany Colors the WHOLE Rainbow!

April (the month, not the person!) has arrived and that means spring is REALLY on its way, right? We have to admit though, we’re a bit sad that March and the epiphany rainbow is over. It was so much fun to see April’s (the person’s, not the month’s) work through the color spectrum. Let’s enjoy […]
