Ring of Fire Artist Challenge

Lansing, MI (April 28, 2010) – Delphi, the source for art glass supplies, and ArtFire, the premier marketplace for handmade crafts, announce a new online art contest. The Ring of Fire Artist Challenge™ is open to all artisans. Entries are being accepted now at DelphiGlass.com/RingOfFire . Contest ends June 30 and winners announced July 9, 2010.

Following its annual festivities for National Art Glass Month, Delphi has organized another online event with the help of its partner ArtFire. The first annual Ring of Fire Artist Challenge is designed for all artisans of all crafts and abilities, inviting them to use common art supplies in new and creative ways.

Artisans are asked to choose one or more items from the 10 products that make up the Ring of Fire. These items range from patterned dichroic glass and fine silver wire to mosaic tiles made entirely from recycled glass. Winners are chosen by popular vote and jury based on technical skill and creativity. A beginner’s category is also available. Grand prize includes a Delphi EZ-Pro Deluxe Kiln by Jen-Ken Kilns, which fires both glass and ceramics. Winners also receive many prizes from Delphi, ArtFire and all sponsoring companies.

“We created the Ring of Fire contest to support the handmade arts, to inspire creativity and to unite artists across all crafts,” said Dan Daniels, president of Delphi.
