EDIT by sweets4ever, September 9, 2010:
Hiya, guys!

I wanted to hop in here and see if I could host a Glass Crafts Challenge for you!  Are any of you still craving one??  I would love to organize one, if there is still a desire for one.

The easiest way for me to assess the situation is via a basic poll.  I've just add one to the top of this thread.  Please vote!  I've set it to run for one week.  After one week, I'll see what sort of results we've gathered from it.  If I can get at least a few participants/interested members, I'd be more than happy to organize one!

Meanwhile, I'll review this thread to see what sort of theme and technique discussion you've already had about this.  I definitely want to plan it based on your input since you're the glass pros!

Please & thank you in advance! Smiley



I'd like to have a glass challenge. What do you guys think would be a good idea or theme?

I'd like it to be something that someone of all skill levels could participate in. Maybe mosaics? Etching? Most creative use of glass? Best use of glass to depict a theme? there are Oh SOOOO many options!

What I'm saying is .....

Ideas - post 'em if you got 'em!

Once we have a bunch of suggestions/ideas I'll set up a poll and we can vote to see which one wins!

Mosaics!  Grin

Actually maybe it could be a topic that would cover most, if not all glass. Like a color, a theme, or something that would be open?

What about doing a challenge called " Sunshine"? Then it can be interpreted by any glass form, and by the artists. By color, shape, type of glass genre, etc.  Smiley

**Shameless Bump**  Grin

Come on glass people, let's come up with some ideas, so we can have our own challenge. It would be awesome to see what all the various glass genre would produce in a challenge.

Put the ones I know are around here on the "hot spot list":
shoozles
lis
glasskanvas
diamunds
tickletickle
handmade heaven
craftygram
licer

I know we are all busy, but I think it would be good to get our first glass challenge going.  No pressure now, lol! Smiley
