epiphany

The definition of an exceptional epiphany glass piece:

Tight form and line tension, interior and exterior curves pulling against each other for visual dominance, and vibrant colors that play off each other yet remain complimentary. Works that create intrigue and drama in relation to their spacial orientation; freestanding, tabletop, hanging, or wall mounted.

Whether sculpture, vase, or bowl each work is created with a single-minded tenacity that will allow no wobble or break in line quality, no second thoughts or lapses in attention that produce poor craftsmanship. Technical skill is of equal importance to artistic sensibilities and both are utilized during creation. There is no unnecessary ornamentation or uneven wall and lip thickness that belay a poor mastery of the craft of glassblowing. .

Pieces remain true to form, intention, and material by demonstrating an understanding of material, technique, and artistic aspirations. An unwavering, and humbling belief that glass is an astonishing material of unlimited potential remains at the very center of why April chooses to create with it.
