Halloween Kitty

Happy Halloween from our resident Halloween kitty, Shiva and the rest of the team at epiphany! Did you know that black cats have the lowest adoption rate compared to other colors of cats? That’s just one of the reasons we support the Michigan Humane Society! And remember, any purchase of our glass kitties will help […]

Color Experimentation

Color Experimentation

The epiphany paperweights are perfect for playing with color! April uses the format of paperweights to explore different combinations of hues and patterns, and how they reflect and glimmer when encased in thick, clear glass. This one with a palette of marigold and harvest orange is perfect for this time of year!

Halloween to Thanksgiving and Beyond!

Halloween to Thanksgiving and Beyond!

With Halloween right around the corner, every house needs a good pumpkin to celebrate the holiday. But why stop there? Our glass pumpkins will stay fresh until Thanksgiving and beyond! Bring the Golden Wheat Pumpkin out year after year for the perfect touch of fall glory!

Friday in the Garden

Friday in the Garden

What a Fun Friday shot! You can really see the scale of the flowers in “Le Jardin les Enfants” with April standing among them. And check out the mastery on that sunflower! Each petal is an individual ribbon of blown glass, which is then pieced together after the glass cools. It’s like inventing AND putting […]

Throwback Time!

This Throwback Thursday brings back the memories… April and her team drove through an epic blizzard to deliver “Gonzo” to the Four Seasons in Vail, Colorado. Of course, as Michiganders, we’re used to the snow, but that was a doozy! Thankfully, the bright oranges and yellows of “Gonzo” warmed right up upon arrival. 🙂

Davidson-Gerson Modern Glass Gallery

This city is awesome for glassblowers. You may not realize it until you leave Detroit, but this region of the country has a history of glassblowing that’s unlike any other place in the United States. So it makes sense that the Henry Ford Museum just opened a completely new modern glass gallery celebrating this incredible […]

Way Back When...

Way Back When…

Here’s an oldie but a goodie! April made “Ruby Iris” all the way back in 2000! Even though that’s quite a few years ago, we still see her love for pure colors and organically shaped glass. April has always been adamant about bringing out the natural qualities of molten glass – the way it can […]

Hair-tastic!

Hair-tastic!

A stylish salon deserves stylish decor! April created this tangled glass pendant for Ezelli Salon in Detroit. Although the light diverges from April’s colorful norm, the whirly, curly ribbons wrap around several tiny LED lights. Sparkly, shiny, and crystal clear – this piece is definitely all epiphany.

Instant Classic

Instant Classic

Fall colors are usually all about deep mustard, burnt orange and coppery red. Despite the warm palette, we think our Vintage Navy Pumpkin fits right in. The richest blue color is striped with a delicate golden overlay, resulting in a combination that’s both surprising and an instant classic all at the same time. This one […]

Life Among the Flowers

Life Among the Flowers

Get swept away by the dreamy hanging flowers of “Pam’s Garden.” Wouldn’t life be great if everyday required time spent among nature?

We've got the power!

We’ve got the power!

Did you know that women-owned businesses contribute 1.5 TRILLION DOLLARS to the U.S. economy and employ over 7.9 million people? AND women-owned businesses are growing at 1.5x the national average! That’s some pretty awesome girl power. We’re proud to be part of the movement.

Certified!

Certified!

We’ve got some exciting news to share! epiphany glass has recently been awarded certification from the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC). This organization, which supports and certifies businesses owned by women, holds a rigorous standard of excellence. There’s a lengthy application for acceptance, including an in-depth inspection of our business practices and a careful […]

Pam's Garden

Pam’s Garden

One of April’s newest custom commissions hangs effortlessly from the ceiling. “Pam’s Garden” is a tribute to these homeowners who love tending to their garden and enjoying the fruits of their labor. Much of April’s artistic inspiration comes from nature, so this project was a perfect fit. And to have the flowers growing from the […]

Hearts on Hearts

Our heart paperweights are so dreamy. Each one feels pleasantly heavy and has unique patterning and shape – that’s what you get with handblown glass! We’ve got several varieties available on the web shop under “studio e.”

Let Me Take You Down, Cause I'm Goin' To....

Let Me Take You Down, Cause I’m Goin’ To….

Strawberry Fields forever! This berry bright Strawberry Fields Pumpkin brings out the best of the best when it comes to color in glass. Such a rich magenta detailed with strands of cotton candy pink looks sweet and sassy next to the vivid chartreuse of the stem. We think Paul, John, George, and Ringo would like […]

CARE House Cares

CARE House Cares

Last night our beautiful Zanfirico bowls graced the tables at the CARE House Care Night gala. We’re proud to support an organization that provides help and resources for the most vulnerable in our community. Three cheers to CARE House for their great work in Pontiac and beyond!

Winter Blues

Winter Blues

Fall is great, but soon enough we’ll be at sub-zero temperatures and then you’re going to want to have something around the house to perk up those winter blues. The Midnight Flower by epiphany is the perfect piece. The indigo and purple of the petals perfectly complement icy nights, but the energetic form of the […]

Sweet Tooth Alert!

We’re doing something CRAZY this week and celebrating Flashback Friday! (Instead of our beloved Throwback Thursday… we know, we’re nuts.) With Halloween just around the corner, you might be stocking up with candy for the neighborhood kids.But imagine if you had this sweet confection in your house everyday! The Candy Shop Chandelier is a sticky, […]

New studio e Kitties!

New studio e Kitties!

Let go of superstition and get in the Halloween spirit with a black cat from studio e! We’ve got a fresh litter of sleeping kitties available, and they’re all a little different, so contact the studio to see what we’ve got! And remember – all cat purchases will benefit the Michigan Humane Society!

Fit for a Queen (or King!)

Fit for a Queen (or King!)

Deep purple is one of the most quintessential fall hues we can think of, so this Royal Purple Pumpkin is really calling our names right now. Topped off with a delicate golden stem? So. Good.

Crazy for Color

Crazy for Color

Just another Manic Monday! If you’re feeling a bit hair-brained this morning, you might be able to relate to this piece of April’s glass art, which is just as crazed and frenetic (in the best way, of course)! This detail of Primary Fete highlights the phenomenal array of color and form you can get with […]

We've Got a Secret...

We’ve Got a Secret…

We have something really exciting to reveal… but we can’t quite tell you yet! In the meantime, keep checking our Facebook page for great art photos, up-to-date event information, and all the latest from epiphany!

Shine On

Shine On

Our Iridescent Orchid Pumpkin is the most beautiful emulsion of purples. And the silver blue of the stem? It’s probably the color we get the most compliments on – it catches the light in a truly dazzling way.

Classic and Cozy

Classic and Cozy

When we picture fall, we think of deep jewel tones, rich surfaces and cozy textures. April’s Jelly Roll light encapsulates the feeling perfectly – especially when hung in this modern take on a classic bar set-up. With a bit of a masculine feel, this room’s ambiance is softened by the warm glow of the Jelly […]

Want a Deal?

Want a Deal?

A little bit of glass goes a long way in making this home space unique and vibrant. Rondelles are great for covering square footage – April’s keen eye places each piece for maximum impact! If you’re looking for the most bang for your buck, consider a one-of-a-kind rondelle mural. 🙂

Red, Red Wine

Red, Red Wine

The first day of October calls for a rich red wine. And even better served in an epiphany Tornado decanter! We promise you’ll never feel as classy as when you’re pouring your drink out of one of these beauties…
