Design Challenge


2018-2019 Winter Design Challenge – “Contained”

This year’s theme was “Contained” – whatever that means to you! Your entry could have been any size and any materials so long as it has a primary component that is metal. Prizes will be gift certificates for West Coast Findings. Everyone should bring their finished works to show off at the April 2019 meeting, where we’ll award our prizes, just in time for the Guild Show.

This year’s entrants:

Anne Johnson

First Place – $100

 

Kristin Fudalla

Second Place – $75

 

Prior Design Challenges

CMAG invited members to take part in its first ever design challenge.

There are only 2 requirements: the entry must be made of metal and it must fit the theme. For our first challenge, the board has chosen “Bridges.” It’s no secret that Portland is known for its iconic bridges, but the word bridge has many other meanings.

Merriam-Webster offers these definitions:

  1. structure carrying a pathway or roadway over a depression or obstacle
  2. a time, place or means of connection or transition
  3. something resembling a bridge in form or function: as in
    • the bridge of the nose, the part of glasses that rests upon it
    • a piece raising the strings of a musical instrument
    • the forward part of a ship’s structure from which it is navigated
    • the hand rest for a pool cue

Participants:
