epiphany glass studios, http://www.epiphanyglass.com, located at 770 Orchard Lake Road in Pontiac, Mich. is a state-of-the-art, 4,000 sq. ft. glassblowing studio and gallery. Since 1997, epiphany’s distinctive look has been created by artist and owner April Wagner.
Wagner adds a contemporary twist to the traditional fazzoletto technique, which originated in the Venini factory of Murano, Italy, during the 1930s and was later popularized by Seattle glass artists. Her work is found in many public and private collections, including those of GM, Pfizer, Strategic Staffing Solutions, Vladimir Putin, Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson.
Epiphany’s pieces are marked by “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. Whether vase, platter, or free form, each piece is created with a single-minded tenacity that will allow no wobble or break in line quality,” according to Wagner.
