Harvest Fest Tomorrow!

Harvest Fest Tomorrow!

Guys! Guess what? Tomorrow is Harvest Fest at Fleur Detroit! Rain or shine, we’ll be out with pumpkins galore from 10-5! (And maybe a few black kitties, too!) So join us and bedeck your home with the loveliest of fall foliage and festooning!

Throwback Thursday!

Throwback Thursday to this sassy piece! “An Insolent Dragon” rears its acid yellow head with all the ferocity of a mystical fairy tale creature. Added bursts of ruby and cobalt give this dragon a totally fantastical appearance. The depths of the imagination know no bounds!

See the Rainbow

See the Rainbow

Our rainbow paperweights are definitely a fan favorite. The colors are so vibrant and pure! And because they’re all handmade, you can rest assured that your rainbow is like no one else’s in the world! Check them out at our web store by clicking “store” above!

A Legit "Knockoff"

A Legit “Knockoff”

Nothing goes to waste here at epiphany! (Or at least as little as possible!) These “knockoffs” are segments of excess glass that are cut off when making a Zanfirico bowl. With the same colored and patterned cane as our beautiful vessels, these little treats make a nice little paperweight (and glitter os nicely in the […]

The Perfect Fit

The Perfect Fit

All of April’s commissioned pieces are site-specific. That means each shape, color, and proportion is specifically calculated to fit the client’s home. In this case, the delicately transparent aqua bubbles perfectly match the chic hue of the ceiling, and the chandelier fits like a glove in this gorgeous entryway!

Sun-Roasted at Harvest Fest

Sun-Roasted at Harvest Fest

This Friday, you’ll be able to check out Sun-Roasted Pumpkin and its colorful brothers and sisters at the fleurdetroit Harvest Fest! Join us on October 1st, 10 am-5pm as we celebrate fall and all of its glorious decorating possibilities at the most beautiful flower shop on the block. We hope to see you there!

Class Act

Class Act

It’s getting to be that time of year where you might want a little somethin’ somethin’ to warm yourself at the end of a long week. Our awesome Michigan Humane Society decanter set with gorgeous tortoise coloring is perfect for having a few friends over for the classiest of drinks. Cheers!

Workin' for the Weekend

Workin’ for the Weekend

Sometimes on Fridays, we have to get a little filing done before we go out and party it up. Hope your work isn’t holding you up from enjoying the weekend!

Autumn is Here!

Autumn is Here!

Happy first day of fall! We’re celebrating with our Caramel Latte Pumpkin, hot off the press from the Fall 2016 studio e line. This little guy has all the rich frothy swirls of your favorite coffee shop drink, with a surprisingly bright green stem. The combination is unexpected, but totally modern.

Whiskey and Ivory

How great are the colors in this Whiskey and Ivory Bubble Chandelier? The subtle hues are the height of sophistication. Even though these neutrals can transcend any season, these warm, caramel tones seem to be just as fall-worthy as a cozy cable knit sweater.

Harvest Fest!

Harvest Fest!

The first day of fall is right around the corner (Thursday!) so we feel it’s TOTALLY acceptable to be pumped for Harvest Fest! Grab a pumpkin spice latte and head over to fleurdetroit​ where you can find the most beautiful plants, flowers, and gifts to spruce up your home for fall. We’ll be there with […]

Meet Rebecca!

Meet Rebecca!

We bet you never knew the staff of epiphany was so big! Today, Meet Rebecca! With four years of glassblowing experience under her belt, we are so fortunate to have Rebecca as a studio assistant. Rebecca is a natural hustler, and we love her outgoing personality and hardworking attitude. Thanks, Rebecca for all of your […]

Happy, happy, happy!

Happy, happy, happy!

Are you enjoying a relaxing Sunday? This shade of orange is so happy – we hope these sculptures bring a smile to your face!

Don't get caught empty-handed!

Don’t get caught empty-handed!

Here’s a stellar idea for your Saturday: Grab a couple of our heart ringholders to keep on hand for last minute birthday presents! At $25 each, you can get one in every color! 🙂 Check out the colors available online under “studio e gifts.”

Play-Doh Day

It’s National Play-Doh Day according to our wacky holidays calendar – what a fun holiday! If you’re feeling creative, go grab a can of your favorite color and spend some time sculpting. In the meantime, enjoy April’s sculpting power in this video of her making a Volcano. Glass has that perfectly soft and stretchy look […]

Mysterious Throwback

Mysterious Throwback

With fall approaching, we’re all about the moody darkness of this week’s Throwback Thursday, “Black Pond.” Abstract shapes in poppy, lavender, cream, and chartreuse emerge from an inky well of black glass. This piece gives off such an air of mystery… what else is lurking within the ebony pond?

Mini Me

Mini Me

Can you guess what’s special about this lime and aqua Old School? It’s hard to tell in a photo, but this piece is actually a MINI Old School – about 2 inches tall! April made this exquisite miniature version of her classic epiphany vessels with all the same care and precision as the regular size. […]

Save the Date

Save the Date

It’s never too early to pencil in the epiphany glass holiday show! Bust out your calendars and mark December 2, 3, and 4 for one of the best local shopping haunts! Plus we’ll have demos, snacks, and merriment to boot, so don’t miss out!

Meet Jamie!

Meet Jamie!

On today’s edition of Meet the Team, we invite you to Meet Jamie Latendresse! If you’ve ever received an epiphany postcard, business card, or seen one of our beautiful posters or flyers, you can thank Jamie for the amazing graphic design work. Playing for team epiphany for over a decade, and has kept our brand […]

Paperweight Maker

April uses the art of making paperweights to explore relationships between color, pattern, and form. Our office collection is full of prototypes and favorites. Each one has a unique personality. A beautiful glass paperweight not only makes a delightful desk accessory, but can look awesome when sparkling on a window sill or other sunny spot.

The Wonderful Wizard of Glassblowing

The Wonderful Wizard of Glassblowing

We’re off to see the wizard, the wonderful wizard of Oz! This Emerald City Pumpkin is part of our Fall 2016 collection and the rich color is sure to make you swoon. Swirled with the most delicate yellow and topped off with a golden stem, we can’t think of a gift any more magical! You […]

Bolero

Bolero

We’re celebrating Friday with another fabulous new piece called “Bolero.” The saucy red color and stretching red ribbons remind us of a passionate dancer wrapped up in her art. A “bolero” is a slow-paced Latin dance, and we think this sculpture invokes the spirit of dance perfectly! This piece is available exclusively on Artful Home.

Seuss-tastic Flowers

Seuss-tastic Flowers

This Throwback Thursday goes out to all the elementary school kids, parents and teachers who are in the full throes of the Back to School madness! Hopefully this year brings many readings of the classic Dr. Seuss books. The whimsical and fantastical illustrations of Dr. Seuss inspired April to create series of flower sculptures in […]

Book Learnin’ Only Goes So Far…

Today is “Read A Book” day according to our wacky holiday calendar. We’re all for reading, but when learning how to blow glass the best way is to get as much hands-on time as possible. April attended the College for Creative Studies where she could spend almost 24/7 in the glass studio. All those hours […]

Meet Brahma!

Meet Brahma!

Meet Brahma, the right-hand kitten in our Feline Dream Team! Brahma was hired on as the resident studio kitty at epiphany glass this past spring. She was born, like a phoenix, out of the fires of the Russell Industrial Center hot glass studios. Brahma graduated early with her PhD in Adorability and provides integral support […]

Blue Lagoon

Blue Lagoon

You might not find a turquoise pumpkin in your garden, but our Blue Lagoon pumpkin shines in a gorgeous jewel tone. Check it out on our web store!

Playful Puppies

Yesterday we posted about the Michigan Humane Society Mega Marches. These are fun events where you can bring your dog out for a great day and support the MHS. But how can you get involved if you don’t have your own pup? Any purchase of our glass dogs will send a portion of the proceeds […]

Mega March Madness

Mega March Madness

The Michigan Humane Society Mega Marches start Saturday, September 10! Take your pup on a lovely stroll Downriver – beautiful scenery and great camaraderie are sure to be in abundance. You can also join up with other Mega Marches at Belle Isle, Kensington, and Stony Creek! More info here.

Throwback Thursday

“Red Sentinel” is the star of today’s Throwback Thursday! Dozens of red curls fit together to create a tapering tower of glass. We love how the sculpture looks a bit like one long ribbon of glass all tangled and knotted together. The shadows made by the curving glass introduce a spectrum of colors from the […]
