Glass Cutting Contest at Las Vegas Glass Craft Expo

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 for more information on how to enterThere are some great glass artists who contribute to this blog, I would love to see one of you win a great prize. 

The 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 the contest.)

In 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!
