It had to happen eventually...

Hi all.

It would seem that the time has come to play out the fantasy I'm sure we've all discussed over a hot gather, at some point.

Good luck to all available!

Paul

That's a lot to go through for a potential payout of only $380 US.

But think of the EXPOSURE! You could be a famous TV star! Don't all artists love doing unpaid work for a chance to really "get their name out there"?

This could be interesting if people are forced to solo blow.

The questionnaire seems to mention flameworking as almost an afterthought. I wonder who the judges will be; I'd look for a Doug, a Suzanne, etc.

Chatted with this guy from the production company on phone then email. Asked him quite a few questions for specifics re. different glassworking methods, he was really fluffy and self promoting on the phone, after a lot of specific questions, Here's his follow up response... still feel a bit vague on their vision for the competition.

Hey Paul!

We are looking for all types of glass blowers. If you produce beautiful art through glass blowing, then you are qualified!

The competition will be held in Ontario, Canada. Production will cover all travel and costs during filming.


Thank you for helping spread the word!!

Maybe it's just make the coolest thing out of glass you can, regardless of technique.

Who is the judge cause I tell you the plug left after breaking the crucible off my 100lbs pot when the hurricane hit proves to be the most conversation starting piece I have ever made. I use it for a door stop.
