Congratulations go to Dawn of First Light Glass for her beautiful "Let's Go For a Ride" pendant

We had a great turn out for the start of the year in our first challenge of 2010. Thanks to all who participated in submitting an entry and voting.

Congratulations go to Dawn of First Light Glass for her beautiful fused glass pendant titled, “Let’s Go for a Bike Ride”.

Dawn found inspiration for her pendant when she thought of her family. One of her favorite pastimes with her husband, son and two daughters is going for a bike ride. “We get to enjoy time together, enjoy beautiful weather and scenery, and get some exercise all at the same time.”

Dawn has been working with the glass since 2003. She has always painted and enjoyed being creative. She jumped on board when her church offered a stained glass class. She fell in love with the medium and soon started making stained glass for herself as well as family and friends. She took a fused glass class several years ago and realized that she was hooked on this medium also. Since then, she set up shop in her home studio. Dawn has this to say about her creative process, “Fused glass feels like I’m painting with glass.”

As a member of CGGE, Dawn appreciates how friendly and supportive the group is of each other. She also has this bit of advice - …”experiment to find your style, and enjoy the creative process.”

You can find more of Dawn’s creative glass work at her Etsy shop:

Second place winners are JWinterbower for “Dagobert the Dino” and JSGlassArt for “Meandering Path”.

Congratulations to all!
