New this year, guests will have the opportunity to create their own glass ornament with epiphany glass artists during the Holiday Show.

Every year during the holiday season, epiphany glass partners with a metro Detroit charity to raise funds through the sale of exclusive glass gift items. This year, epiphany has extended its partnership with the Michigan Humane Society, offering a colorful line of pet-themed glass works, including both functional items and decorative figurines, with a portion of proceeds benefitting MHS. The pet-themed items range from $40 - $690 and include sleeping kitties, colorful dogs, drinking glasses and small and large water/food bowls featuring tiny pawprint embellishments amidst the colorful glass designs.
Also new this season are the colorful Petite Zanfirico glass vessels, the latest creation in the line of Zanfirico bowls launched by the studio last spring. Each vessel is handmade from specially prepared glass "canes" in an array of vibrant hues and swirling designs. Caneworking is a traditional Italian technique that involves creating complex patterns of cane to color a piece. The colors and patterns of the canes were made by April and her epiphany glass team especially for this new series. .
This smaller version of the larger epiphany Zanfiricos, measuring approximately 7" x 4", is the perfect touch for any shelf, mantle or tablescape. Each Petite Zanfirico, available online and in-studio, is $450. Visit the epiphany glass studio store at www.epiphanyglassstore.com. Original Zanfirico bowls are also available online.
Epiphany glass studio will also host Open Studios on Saturday, Dec. 10 and Dec. 17, from noon to 4 p.m. StudioE gift items, including paperweights and desk accessories swirling with color, plump pumpkins of all shapes and sizes, and a variety of beautiful fall leaves and flowers, will be available along with collectible art pieces by glass artist and owner April Wagner.
