April Wagner

"I love working with molten glass. It is a responsive, captivating material that continually engages and challenges my creativity. In my work, I like to play with form, texture, color, and function. "

Wagner's passion for glass is unparalleled by anything else in her life. Committed to a lifelong exploration of this fascinating medium, Wagner is constantly creating new designs and loves the challenge of working with a 2000-degree material. When she's not working in glass, Wagner loves gardening and playing with her cat, Shiva.

Wagner and her team of glassblowers work together to create contemporary blown glass pieces. Whether creating functional or decorative work, her approach combines a commitment to quality with an emphasis on sophisticated color theory and patterning.

April Wagner received her BFA in glass from the College for Creative Studies in Detroit after spending a couple of years at Alfred University in New York. Before graduating, she began her business, Epiphany Studios, and has been successfully operating her studio in Pontiac, Michigan for more than twenty years.
