Recycled Arts Contest

All you crafters out there know how important recycling, reusing, and thriftiness are. Y’all are pros at making do and saving and looking at a pile of who-knows-what and turning it into something great.

So to showcase the ingenuity of crafters everywhere, Delphi Glass and Diamond Tech Crafts are sponsoring a Recycled Arts Contest. Entries are fun and diverse, including smudge pot mosaics, barbed wire sculptures, and a mosaic mirror made of plastic gift cards.  Holy cats—now that’s what I call regifting!

Of course this contest coincides with Earth Day (April 22nd), and it couldn’t be simpler to enter: create something using old items in a new and interesting way, then post a photo of your creation in Delphi’s Artist Gallery, where you may also comment on other projects and gain inspiration.

Acceptable projects include anything in mixed media, collage, stained glass, fused glass, glass jewelry, flameworking, mosaics, and ceramics that contain at least one recycled element. Ten winners will be chosen at random to receive the new Generation Green (G2) Bottle Cutter. (This is a really cool item–trust us!)

Entries will be accepted April 1 – 30, 2011–click here to enter. Winners will be announced May 6th. To enter or learn more about the Recycled Arts Contest, click here, or contact Delphi at (800) 248-2048.

Come on, let’s show ‘em how creative us C&Ders are!
