The CGGE Challenge

Here at the Creative Glass Guild we love to set ourselves a challenge and this month's glass challenge is all about SUMMER!
"Summer" ---that wonderful time of year when temperatures climb and we get out and head for the beach, mountains and family gatherings. It’s also the time of year that our gardens and yards are in bloom and Mother Earth is reveling in all her beauty.
The CGGE’s August Challenge is to design a work using "Summer" as your inspiration. Entries will be accepted in stained, fused, lampworked and mosaic glass mediums. The contest will begin August 1 and will end promptly at midnight on August 25th. Each CGGE member may submit up to three entries. All entries must be posted on
CGGE Challenge Group on Flickr.
Voting will be open to everyone on Etsy and the winner will be featured on the CGGE Home Page.
Let your imagination soar, head for the studio and design, design, design!
Please note: entries are open to CGGE members only but all votes can be cast on Etsy. More information about voting coming soon.
