Creating Our Colorful Birds Of Beauty
We love the beauty of nature at epiphany glass and we are fortunate that our Pontiac, Michigan studio is surrounded by water and trees. We encourage the local birds to visit us by placing bird feeders all around the studio grounds and we are graced with an abundance of chirping birds and bursts of color as they fly to and from the feeding stations. We wanted to share how we make our birds of beauty as each is inspired by their unique characteristics as well as their special meanings to anyone who has a favorite feathered friend. Not only do they bring joy to those who collect them but they also make a wonderful gift when you want to send a handmade gift that includes a special message from the heart.
