Winners of the 2014 AAE Glass Contest Announced

Thank you to everyone who participated in this years contest. You had the judges pulling their hair out trying to narrow the winners down.  Thank you to our guest judges Patty GrayPaul Tarlow and Kristine Crawley, artist/educator for taking the time to pick their favorites and provide commentary, it really helped. The imagination and creativeness expressed through this contest was mind blowing!  So much time and detail went into each piece and the support from each other, for each other, on the new AAE Glass Jewelry page is so encouraging. Thank you.

A huge thank you goes out to Olympic Kilns who generously donated the grand prize of a New Vitrograph Kiln.  Olympic is the only kiln we use at AAE Glass.  Before you make a decision on purchasing a new kiln, be sure to contact Tanya Veit with any questions.  Olympic builds to suit your needs and when you buy from Tanya, you just might get a firing schedule or two from her!

David was a big part of the glass world and his techniques will live on through those he touched.  The fused glass industry has been on an upswing due in part to people like David Alcala, Patty Gray, Paul Tarlow and Tanya Veit.  It is such a good feeling to see what we can accomplish when faced with adversity.  We hope everyone had fun with the contest and we will be sure to run another in the future.  
Thank you, Thank you, THANK YOU!

Sincerely, 
The Veit Family

MEET THE JUDGES
PATTY GRAY: Patty has been making her mark in the fused glass world for decades.  We had the honor of hosting Patty at the AAE Glass Art Studio a couple years ago and she left a great impression with our artist base.  Hopefully another visit is in the cards in the future!  Don't miss a chance to take her class.
DAVID ALCALA:  David is another glass artist who has been producing breathtaking work for decades.  We have also had the pleasure of hosting David here in Cape Coral, Florida and will be doing so again later this year.  David offers several different techniques that have changed the way people work with frit.
PAUL TARLOW: Rounding out our fused glass art triumvirate is Paul Tarlow.  Paul is an accomplished studio artist and instructor as well as the owner of fusedglass.org.  Paul has parlayed his experiences with fused glass art into an informational website dedicated to fused glass that is second to none.
