April Wagner has run her glassblowing studio and gallery out of an old TV repair shop in Pontiac since 1997. She repurposed the space as a professional glassblowing studio upon purchase, growing her Epiphany Studios from this quiet, bucolic corner of Pontiac, nestled along Beaudette Park, into a thriving business. So much so that she needed new space. But rather than relocate, Wagner raised $650,000 to build a 2,600 sq. ft. addition onto the original 4,000 sq. ft. studio. A ribbon-cutting ceremony with Pontiac Mayor Tim Greimel and other local officials was held on Thursday, Sept 8, to celebrate the completion of the project.
