Epiphany Studios Paperweight

May 2, 2022 | Museum Monday Treasures

Today’s Museum Monday treasure from the Museum of American Glass in WV is a paperweight from Epiphany Studios in Pontiac, Michigan. It is actually almost two paperweights in one: on one side, it has a multi-colored spiral radiating out from a bright pink center, while when you turn it over, it has a blue spiral with white frit pick-up on the underside. It is signed “Epiphany 1996” and is 5 ½ inches in diameter.

The third photograph is of a second Epiphany paperweight in our collection. This one is a sea urchin paperweight with green stripes radiating from an orange core on one side, and a bright green spiral on the underside. The bottom is indented and signed “Epiphany 2006.” This one is 4 ½ inches in diameter.
