This incredible piece titled, "Totem" was showcased at April's solo exhibition at the Saginaw Art Museum. This sculpture is made up of hundreds of glass peaz and contains an LED light that illuminates the glass beautifully when lit.

Now the kitty can be knocked off the punty! The pontil mark is melted with a torch and pushed in. Lastly, a heart stamp is pressed on the bottom. This Ronnie sleeping kitty will go in the annealer. Once it's out, the bottom will be engraved and then he's ready to be displayed. Hope you enjoyed this process!

This stunning hanging sculpture titled, "Acrobat" was displayed at April's solo exhibition at the Saginaw Art Museum. Individually handblown glass tripods in various shades of green hang suspended from cables. The abstract nature of the piece allows for the viewer to add their own interpretation of the subject matter. The shapes could be birds in flight, acrobats performing gravity-defying feats or whatever your imagination can conjure up. . . #glassart #visualart handblownglass #glassblowing #saginawartmuseum #saginaw #puremichigan #contemporary #abstract #creative #art #artist at Saginaw Art Museum

Here is part two of the Ronnie-inspired sleeping kitties. Back at the marver, the glass is once again shaped. Then it is taken to the bench to make the cat shape. The glass is wrapped around itself and the excess is cut off with diamond shears. Tweezers are used to make ears and then the glass is moved up the punty using jacks. Tomorrow the kitty will be knocked off the punty!

Here's how we made the Ronnie Sleeping Cats. A gather of clear glass is taken and dipped in black frit. It's rolled on the marver to work the color in and shape it into a lightbulb shape. After returning to the reheating chamber, it's dipped into the ashes to create a stripe. A larger gather of clear glass is taken to encapsulate the color and the excess is dripped off. We'll post the next steps tomorrow.

On April 1st, Jack's son, Ronnie passed away. He was a cute and playful kitten that enjoyed running around the yard and playing with his siblings. He was one of the braver members of the feral family, venturing inside the studio to eat. We miss seeing this cute fella around. His memory will live on. We took him to the @mhumane to be cremated and incorporated his ashes into Ronnie-inspired Sleeping Kitties. We will be posting videos of how the sleeping kitties were made over the next few days. To view the entire video now, visit our IGTV. Thank you to Michigan Humane Society for their services and thoughtfulness. We miss you Ronnie! . . #michiganhumanesociety #inmemory #cat #tuxedocat #catsofinstagram #glassblowing #handblownglass #paperweight #sleepingkitty #visitdetroit #pontiac #puremichigan #handmade at epiphany studios

Here's the completed chandelier made for the Grosse Pointe War Memorial! Last summer, April worked on this beautiful chandelier. This piece is made up of dozens of individually handblown glass bubbles, finials and discs of various sizes in transparent red, white and blue. These pieces all hang from a canopy constructed specifically for this piece and housing the electrical components. This piece adds a unique but traditional and patriotic touch to a historical space. The various shapes, sizes and colors within the chandelier, made this a fun project to work on! . . . #handblownglass #glassblowing #grossepointewarmemorial #art #fineart #chandelier #handmade #lighting #lightingdesign #interiordesign #grossepointe #grossepointewarmemorial #warmemorial #puremichigan #functionalart at The War Memorial

Here is the final shape! This is a more intricate shape divided up into several sections. Like in earlier examples, you can see how beautiful the color is when it fades from red to blue as it cools down. Tomorrow we'll post the completed Grosse Pointe War Memorial Chandelier. If you can't wait, send us a DM to see it early!

We're having a rainy Sunday but that's okay because April showers bring May flowers! Until we see more flowers in bloom, here are some beautiful flower sculptures. They never wilt and you don't have to remember to water them. . . #contemporaryart #visualart #abstractart #glassblowing #handblownglass #art #fineart #sculpture #abstract #glassart #glasssculpture #puremichigan #visitdetroit #artist #artfido #art_whisper #artexamples #artdiscovered #arts_help #arts_daily #artsupporters #detroit #flowers #contemporary #nature at epiphany studios

This chandelier piece was made using a pineapple mold to pick up this intricate texture. It's really interesting to see how it becomes more pronounced as the glass expands. We have one more style to post tomorrow. Can't wait to see the finished piece? Send us a DM to see it before we post it Monday!

Here is the second shape of chandelier pieces made! The clear glass is placed in the mold to pick up texture. At the bench, the glass is stretched out and then blown into. Jacks are used to create segments, dividing the glass, creating a beautiful shape.
