Glass Category Challenge - Functional Glass - Due June 5 - June 12

The people have spoken  Cool , and the new challenge was decided in our recent poll.



For this Functional Glass challenge, your mission is to create a glass project using any glass technique(s) of your liking, but the finished project must be designed with a practical use in mind!  Your project can have other components and supplies as long as it has a purpose. ie; plate, cup, serving tray, glasses, planter, vase, frame, etc.

Rules:

    * Craft your project during this challenge period (May 2nd - June 5 2011) only.  Projects created or posted before this time frame will not be removed from the entry board, but they will be excluded from the voting poll. No previously posted items allowed.
    * Post your craft during the period of June 5 - June 12 2011. No sooner.  No later.  On June 5 there will be a special folder created for entries here on the Glass category board.
    * Voting will happen from June 13 - June 20, 2011.
    * Each participant can enter ONE project only(Although your entry can have multiple components to it).


Originality:

It's probably impossible to know whether your project is 100% original, has never been posted on Craftster or made by anyone else in the past.  But if your project was definitely inspired by something you've seen before, please give credit to that project.

Prizes & Publicity:

At the end of the challenge, I'll set up a poll right here and the first place winner will get:
(1) their project in the Craftster Blog, Craftster Twitter and Craftster Facebook
(2) and these generously-donated prizes [winner can receive prize in U.S. or non-U.S.]

Prize #1:
Tiny Tile Sampler provided by: Tiny Tile Mosaics

Prize #2:
Our next challenge prize item comes from award winning jewelry artist Lori Mendenhall. Your choice from the two necklaces of her original pendant creations.

Specializing in creating pendants and beads from polymer clay, epoxy clay, resin and glass. Then combining techniques and mediums with an array of metals, glass, and pearls, her designs are truly unique and intriguing. Lori is also a self professed glitter junkie as well as a budding mosaic artist! Busy lady!

Lori Mendenhall has appeared in many publications, writes articles detailing her own techniques, and has won numerous awards for her jewelry creations. Doing shows all over California to showcase her talent, Lori is building a name for herself.

Thank you to both Lori Mendenhall, Tiny Tile Mosaics for these incredible prizes they have so generously donated!
