This fun contest will be held on Friday, April 5th from 5:00 to 6:00pm on the show stage in the Exhibit Hall at the 2013 Las Vegas Glass Craft Expo.
AAE Glass has donated a gift certificate for one of the lucky winners. There are several great prizes up for grabs in this contest. Contact Charlene at 907-333-7207 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on how to enter. There are some great glass artists who contribute to this blog, I would love to see one of you win a great prize.
Glass Cutting Contest is free and open to everyone. Each participant
is provided a pattern, clear glass, and a 4-minute time limit. Judging
is based on the accuracy of the cuts completed. Prizes will be awarded
for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place for the Beginner and Advanced categories.
(See page 86 in this year's show book for the half-page ad announcing
addition to the two traditional categories mentioned above, there will
be the "Super Pro Category". These invited participants (instructors
and vendors) will be cutting glass pieces from an exclusive peacock
pattern designed by Lisa Vogt as quickly as possible with encouragement
from the audience. These pieces will be assembled, fused and then
auctioned on Sunday. The Super Pro Category will also have prizes for
1st, 2nd and 3rd places plus we will use an "Applause Meter" to
determine the most entertaining Super Pro. Be sure to come and watch
the contests and cheer all the contestants on!
