Thanks so much to everyone who participated in our glass contest! We wish a few more of you had found time to but we got some beautiful pieces of glasswork. We did not have enough entries to have winners for each topic so the votes were counted just for the overall contest.
Carylne Lynch won for her lovely fused glass sunflower so she will get a free membership to the glass guild for this coming year.
We’ve shown the entries here again with the names of the artists attached so you can see who did each piece. It was all really beautiful work and it is fun to see different ways the same subject can be handled in different glass methods. A contest or a challenge is a great way to push yourself as an artist and stretch your creativity and imagination. It is also a fun way to interact more with your fellow glass artists.
(see the original contest photos that inspired these pieces in the previous newsletter article )
We would love to have suggestions from our members on other subjects for future contests or challenges, something that would work for all the various types of glass techniques used by our membership. One interesting suggestion we have had is to do pieces where blue is the predominant color!
